End Needless Fatalities
Ensuring on-road first-aid is available to drivers
Why Are We Here?
To ensure road crash victims receive immediate life-saving care, prior to the arrival of paramedics
We have first aid in the workplace to provide an immediate response to illness and injury but we don’t have the same response for those whose workplace is the road network, which is officially recognised as the most dangerous workplace in the UK.

WHAT THEY SAY
The hon. Gentleman, (Rob Flello MP) highlighted eloquently the difference made by DFA, and our nation is stronger for its work. (Hansard, November 2015)
Very impressed with the trainer. Delivered content clearly and concisely without ever talking down to attendees. One of the most exciting courses I have ever attended.
Excellent Training and course. The Content was pitched just right with a good mix of presenting/videos and practical.
Providing professional drivers, who are often first to witness or come across such incidents, with basic life support training and the knowledge to know what to do will ultimately mean patients get the care they need whilst emergency help is en route.
