The cost of the service rendered shall be determined individually, considering the financial capacity of the person (or the family).
This service has a special mission since it reminds us that we all need to know how to help others and save their lives. First aid competence is extremely important for all Malteser volunteers since they work with seniors who often need such assistance. The Order of Malta Relief Organization is often described as a responsible community. Therefore, we share our knowledge with all citizens of Lithuania. The funds, collected for the trainings, are used to expand the Young School Paramedics program.
We have a special training certificate and you can also get a first aid certificate for your courses. We believe that knowing how to provide first aid helps to make our society safer.
First aid training consists of theoretical and practical parts.
It focuses more on the practical application of knowledge by simulating real-life situations (fractures, bleeding, choking, seizures, clinical death and other acute conditions) in which first aid is required. The training is aimed at adults, young people or children, and the funds raised will go towards expanding the Young Paramedics programme.
First aid events are staffed by health professionals and volunteers who are trained in first aid. The number of team members is determined by the number of participants in the event. We travel to different cities and towns in Lithuania as needed.
We have experience in a wide range of events: we have provided first aid at the Song Festival, we have been on duty for the Pope’s arrival, we provide security at the Sea Festival every year, at the ‘Būtent’ debate festival, etc.
It is very important for Maltesers to provide quality services, which is why we also invest in the renewal of medical equipment and specialists.
