Overview / Description

The First Aid competition is a team event designed to promote and demonstrate a high standard of First Aid prowess by SLSA members.

Competitors are required to manage a situation, examine casualties, diagnose their injuries and disabilities and carry out the necessary treatment in priority order as dictated by the scenario presented to them.

The competition is based on current SLSA First Aid practices and Manuals and marks are allotted to seven sections of the scenario including the approach to the casualty, examination of the casualty and diagnosis of injuries, specific points for all treatments, disposal of the casualty, management of the incident and first aid kits. Judges may add or deduct marks at their discretion.
