Family First Aid & Heart Safety in the Home


Because it is officially #HeartMonth 2018 the First Aid Canada team feels it is important to kindly address safety within the home. The home is a place we spend a large amount of our time each day and night. Both family and friends will continually be guests the home so it is important to be prepared with a first aid kit and an automated external defibrillator. 

Below you will find our reccomendations for transforming your home into a fully prepared and safe one!
