Each year, thousands of Quebec children register for day camps in order to spend an enjoyable and enriching summer. However, what happens when a child is stung by a wasp and gets a severe anaphylactic reaction? What if a child gets a head injury after a serious fall on the playground.
Whether someone is injured or is feeling faint from the summer sun, first aiders must be ready to respond quickly and provide necessary care.
