In addition to first aid for humans, Emma established First Aid for Pets, empowering pet owners and those working with pets to give life-saving treatment in those first vital minutes.
Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for people to access these skills and remove barriers to learning such as time, money and geography and consequently save lives.
When working in the burns unit, Emma was looking after a little boy who was badly scalded and needed skin grafts – his mum had panicked when the accident happened and had not known what to do. Had his mother simply run the injury under cool running water immediately, he may not even have needed medical treatment. Emma was desperate to empower more people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to help in a medical emergency and started First Aid for Life.
