One of the biggest tools in your first aid arsenal is your mobile phone. Alerting the emergency services as soon as you can is the number one priority so get to know what your phone can do. Teach your children how to call 999 when your phone is locked and iPhones for example will display an SOS screen when you press the side button 5 times. This calls the emergency services where ever you are.
Most phones have these great functions but only a handful of us know how to use them. Even if you don't know first aid the operator will help you to help the patient, all you have to do is call.
