To tourniquet or not to tourniquet? Practising wartime first aid in the 20th century

Tue 11 Sep • 18:00 – 22:00

Trinity Market Hull

Organised by:
  • University of Hull
  • Suitable for: 16+

    During the First and Second World Wars and the Cold War around 2 million people learnt life-saving first aid to care for the injured troops and civilians. What was it like to be a first aider during the wars? Come along to this drop-in event and practise some historical first aid on a friend.

    Please note: The tourniquets used in this event are a method of first aid that can be dangerous if used in the wrong situation and without the right training.
