The final week our emergency class was spent dealing with emergency scenarios. In all but one case, the mothers were the victims and the children had to decide what to do.
Mom's cooking and cuts herself badly with the knife
Mom's eating and chokes on a nut
Mom was walking with scissors and tripped to have the scissors impaled
Mom was found unconscious and not breathing
Mom was having difficulty breathing and then fell into an unconscious state
Seeing the other moms acting this way was a bit unnerving. After several minutes of no response, even I began to wonder if it was a real life scenario. Thankfully, it was all acting on this day and we all feel much better prepared for an emergency.
