Emma Hammett established First Aid for Life in 2007, but was initially inspired much earlier, when nursing; as she repeatedly saw the difference prompt and appropriate first aid makes to someone’s prognosis. Her key motivation came when working in the Burns Unit, looking after a little boy so badly burnt he needed skin grafts. Had his mother known basic First Aid skills, he might not even have needed to be admitted. Emma’s sister and nephew both became paraplegics following accidents and it opened her eyes to the importance of accident prevention, management and support following an accident and an overwhelming need to empower more people with the skills and confidence to know how to help in those first vital seconds.
Emma is widely recognised as an authority on first aid matters and regularly writes for online and print publications and features in media. Emma is first aid expert for the NCT, Mothercare, JoJoMaman Bebe, Baby London, Absolutely Mama, The Parent’s Directory, and frequently called upon as a TV spokesperson on Sky News, BBC, Channel 5 News. Emma featured regularly on the radio show the Rational Health Service.
