Family 1st is a family run business started by Hannah Ogden a passionate first aid trainer and health focused individual. Hannah started Family1st after being in an emergency situation with her father when he needed first aid and not knowing what to do.
Hannah- “We were out for a family meal when my dad started slurring his words and then he collapsed at the table, I thought he had died at the table. It was honestly the most terrifying experience and that feeling of not knowing what to do is worse than anything I can describe. Luckily the ladies on the table behind us were fully first aid trained and worked at a care home and they knew exactly what to do. They rushed over and very calmly handled the situation.
It was from this point that I decided I would do a first aid course, I did not want to feel like that ever again! Since then I have taken my emergency first aid, my first aid at work, my paediatric first aid and my train the trainer qualification. Now me and my team travel around the country teaching the most valuable training of all Child and Baby Paediatric first aid to families across the country and we love it.”
