What is EFR?

Emergency First Response is a programme designed to train participants to follow exactly the same priorities of care used by Medical Professionals. The contents of the course are based on guidelines by ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation). The course is accredited by over 60 International Organisations including the Duke of Edinburgh Award UK, Health & Safety Executive of Great Britain, Royal Yachting Association (UK) and 27 governing bodies in America.

Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches participants how to respond to life threatening emergencies. The course focuses on Primary care through developing knowledge, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure participants have confidence in their ability to respond to any medical situation. 

Emergency First Response Secondary Care (First Aid) trains participants to deal with injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Aspects covered include:

Emergency First Response Care for Children teaches participants how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children (ages 1 to 8 years) and infants less than 1 year old.

Participants will be provided with manuals and a DVD to watch prior to the course date to assist learning. The course lasts one day and all members who have attended will be tested on both practical and theoretical knowledge. Everyone who completes the course will receive an EFR responder card. Over 250 Harrow pupils and 80 Harrow staff have successfully completed this course.
