Whilst researching this topic we came across this excellent resource which gives examples of ordinary people who have used first aid effectively in a variety of different settings. Have a browse through the stories and be prepared to be inspired. If you have any stories of your own then feel free to discuss them below – obviously making sure you keep all people involved anonymous.
