Dear Fellow Parent,

Knowing the correct procedures CAN make the difference between life and death.

And yes—you can learn the correct procedures…in about 3 hours.

We’re Paramedics—and Parents

Hi we’re Katie and Ben Fisher. We’re Intensive Care Paramedics, with in excess of 30 years on road experience. We also have 3 children.

Many times, we’re called to the scene of an accident involving a child. And many times, we leave the scene thinking...

“If only the parent had known some basic first aid techniques, the child’s chances of a speedy recovery could have been much, much higher...”

We can’t stress this enough...


So, along with Jen Douneen (and mother of 3), we started Kids First Aid.

Kids First Aid Paramedics specialises in teaching parents and carer's how to deal with the 10 most common emergency situations facing Aussie children…using current first aid protocol, presented in an easy-to-remember and entertaining format.

When you attend our 3-hour first aid workshop, you'll learn how to calmly and correctly respond to these common first aid emergencies...

  • CPR
  • Drowning
  • Allergies & Anaphylaxis
  • Choking
  • Bites & Stings
