Make Basic Life Support a part of the School Curriculum so that more lives can be saved

Make Basic Life Support a part of the School Curriculum so that more lives can be saved

Implement Basic Life Support into the school curriculum

Why is this important?

The 999 Emergency Ambulance Service is under pressure to hit targets and with the increasing amount of people within the UK is creating bigger problems. Imagine the positive impact it would have on everyone if 'Basic Life Support' was taught in schools. This would help the emergency services also would give a better life expectancy for the more severe issues such as Heart Attack and any other major life threatening situations. Besides giving the added advantage of promoting and preserving lives, this would also give a good life skill and good footing for the child as they grow if they wish to proceed into the medical sector. Introducing BLS into the school curriculum will preserve, prevent and promote not only life but skills and knowledge of all.
