Pam has lived in Bahrain for over forty years during which time has taught first aid to a wide variety of audiences both voluntarily, in the workplace, in schools, sport's establishments and in the home. Pam is an ex Nurse, Midwife, Nurse for the Mentally Subnormal, First Aid Instructor and reflexologist Her passion for first aid education started in 1980 when she was given the opportunity to save a little boy’s life who was drowning. Finding it hard to believe that a high percentage of people were unaware of what to do in an emergency such as this began her campaign to ensure at least one person in every family in Bahrain knows basic first aid. ‘Every time I hear of someone dying as a result of an accident or sudden illness I always wonder if the first person at the scene had given the correct treatment would that person be alive now’? ‘I always think it could have been one of my family and know your families are equally important’. It is a simple ‘tool’ we can all learn and possess from an early age. There is no greater gift in the world than the ability to help a person in need’. Although Pam has taken a step back from actual course delivery she is still very much part of the smooth running of First Aid Box and continues her crusade to educate the community in all things health and safety related, her latest passion being the promotion of AEDs in public places.
