Due to the hot, wet, and humid weather, experts are warning that we will experience a “spider plague”.
We have put this ‘First Aid for spider bites’ guide together so that everyone has the knowledge of what to do in case of a spider bite. Based on our envenomation resources and learning given to our CPR Kids class participants, it has the essential steps detailing what to do if you or your little one is bitten by all kinds of spiders.
Print it out and stick it to your fridge, and keep a copy on your phone. Don’t forget to download our free CPR quick reference guide too! Just scroll down to the bottom of our home page.
