December is a mere day away which means that Santa will be coming down your chimney in just under a month to deliver your presents safely under the tree in time for Christmas morning. It’s been a long time coming, but the festive season is finally here. 

For the festive period, we’ve decided to share some first aid wisdom to help you celebrate a safe Christmas. So, each day, we’ll provide you with the skills to handle a specific first aid emergency, with the help from a well-known Christmas character.

Festive First Aid

Although thinking about first aid emergencies may dampen your festive spirit, it is always important to be fully prepared. Especially since more than 80,000 people a year need hospital treatment for injuries during the Christmas period. Around 5,000 people will sadly end up in hospital on Christmas day alone.

Common Christmas injuries include electric shocks from Christmas lights, burns and scalds from cooking the turkey and falls from putting up the tree.

Here at Imperative, we want to ensure that people can quickly and effectively handle first aid accidents. Over Christmas, your local chemist and doctors are likely to be closed, so knowing how to treat injuries and other first aid traumas is essential.

First Aid knowledge can deteriorate within 3 months of completing training, so be sure to brush up on your skills in time for the festive period.

12 Days, 12 First Aid Lessons

A big part of December is advent; who doesn’t love opening their daily sweet treat every morning for a whole month? So, in the festive spirit, we’ve decided to put our very own spin on the tradition.

For the 12 days of Christmas, we’ll be opening up our advent calendar each day to reveal a festive character, who will deliver important first aid tips to you. From CPR to choking, we’ll provide you with all of the knowledge you need to help save a life in an emergency and have a very merry Christmas.

Stay tuned to find out which familiar Christmas faces will be presenting you with their life-saving tips!
