Government told to introduce first aid lessons in schools over escalating unrest

15 July 2016, 09:48 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The Ministry of Education should introduce first aid lessons into the academic curriculum following rising cases of unrest in schools, a St. John Ambulance Officer Eunice Mugendi has said.

Mugendi, who is the Eastern Region staffing officer said with the numerous fire outbreaks in schools, first aid training is vital as it would ensure that students are able to respond properly.

She added that making the classes mandatory would also save lives as more Kenyans will know what to do in the event of a crisis.

Speaking in Kirinyaga during St John Training and inter-schools first aid competition, Mugendi explained that a large number of accident victims die because of wrongful handling and management by the first responders.

She said the annual event seeks to equip and enhance competence in responding to emergencies and accidents.

She added that the skills imparted to students will have a ripple effect to the communities and to the country at large.
