For 2022, there is only one compulsory challenge – CPR.
One of the most important ingredients of XRACE is the ability to create authentic, shared family experiences. For 2022, we are using a fun video that focuses on the correct procedures around what to do if a person is having a heart attack. The value in this challenge is not at your XRACE, it is in providing the whole family including older, secondary school aged kids included an opportunity to discuss CPR.
For younger children, we invite you to focus on the following steps around what to do if a person collapses and mum or dad aren’t around.
Check you are not in any danger.
Check the person over.
Shout for help.
Call 111 and follow the operators’ instructions.
Explain what a DEFIBis and that you should always try and locate one.
For older children we leave the decision up to the adults as to whether discuss the hands only CPR component of the challenge. Remember to add the DEFIBinto the conversation.
For parents, we invite you to watch the video in its entirety and again, remember to add a DEFIBinto the conversation.
Do not perform CPR on each other - this video is for educational purposes only.
This challenge serves as much as a refresher for the parents as well as being able to discuss the steps and procedures around CPR for the children and as with any XRACE challenge, the final decision remains with the parents as to whether a team should complete this.
