Our Story

Theo Mallos is an Intensive Care Paramedic, a 2018 recipient of the Victor Chang Heart of Gold Award and the owner of Rescueblue.  

 After attending a heart-breaking job in his role as a paramedic, Theo and his wife Chanelle embarked on a journey to empower all parents and carers with the essential skills needed to save a child’s life.

 Five years on, and with thousands of parents and carers trained, Theo and Chanelle invite you to attend one of their truly valuable Little Aid Workshops.

Jess Peters is a  mother of two beautiful boys and a registered paramedic with over 11 years experience in emergency prehospital care. Jess and Theo started their careers together working in the busy inner city of Sydney, attending to life threatening emergencies. Jess has since moved to the sunny Sunshine Coast and has taken Rescueblue with her, teaching throughout southern Queensland. Jess aims to educate her community with the skills needed to save a child’s life. Touch base with Jess and let her and her team empower you today.

Frequently Asked Questions

CAN I BRING MY BABY TO THE LITTLE AID WORKSHOP?

Absolutely, bring your kids and babies! It wouldn’t be Little Aid without little people!

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM/MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PEOPLE FOR A PRIVATE LITTLE AID WORKSHOP?

The minimum requirement to host a private Little Aid Workshop is 6 people. We do not have a maximum number, however if we feel that the group is becoming to large we may bring an additional trainer along at no extra charge to you.

WHO IS THE LITTLE AID WORKSHOP TAILORED TOWARDS?

Everyone! We highly recommend our workshop to parents, nannies, grandparents and babysitters. Basically anyone who will be looking after your child.

HOW LONG DOES THE LITTLE AID WORKSHOP GO FOR?

The training ranges from 2.5 – 3 hours depending on the size of the group and questions.

I LIVE IN A SMALL APARTMENT; CAN I STILL HOLD A LITTLE AID WORKSHOP?

We love cozy! All we ask is that each participant has enough room to sit on the floor with a mannequin.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE BIG GROUP, HOW CAN I ATTEND A LITTLE AID WORKSHOP?

Rescueblue holds Public Little Aid Workshops monthly that anyone can attend. These are held Australia wide. See our “Public Little Aid Workshop” page for times and dates for a workshop near you.

Our Instagram is the best place to catch up on all things Rescueblue. We conduct kids and baby first aid / CPR training and workshops for parents regularly. Our courses are available in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Australia-wide. Jump over and give us a follow!

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO TAKE BUBS TEMPERATURE? 🤒 With thousands of baby thermometers on the market, we often get asked this question - what’s the best baby thermometer? The traditional digital probe thermometer which is placed under bubs armpit actually provides you with the most accurate reading. This is followed by the ear thermometers which are safe to use once bubs are 6 months and older 📸 by @jess_rescueblue at @cheekylittlemonkeysplay 💙👶🏻🚑

WHEN SHOULD YOU WORRY ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S FEVER?✨A fever is the immune systems natural response to viral or bacterial infection in our body. If your child has a fever but is otherwise happy, playing and consuming fluids normally we generally don't need to be too concerned about it and can let it run its course. Most fevers will dissipate in a day or two. However, there are times when we need to be suspicious of fever and seek medical attention immediately:
🤒 If your child is less than 3 months old.
🤒 If your child is extremely sleepy or extremely irritable.
🤒 If your child has trouble breathing, or is breathing more quickly or forcefully than usual.
🤒 If your child has severe pain, or difficulty moving any part of the body (like their neck).
🤒 If the fever is accompanied by a non-blanching rash (meaning it does not go white when you push on it) then it CAN be a sign of a serious infection and you need to seek medical attention immediately by calling 000 for an Ambulance.
As Paramedics we always encourage parents to trust their instincts. If your child has a fever and your gut it telling you something is not right then seek medical attention. No one knows your child better then you so call 000 if you are worried! #rescueblue #saveachildslife 💙👶🏻🚑

We asked Jess Peters @jess_rescueblue TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF & WHAT DO YOU DO AT RESCUEBLUE?
I became a paramedic in my early 20’s and have had the opportunity to work in Metropolitan and rural areas responding to life threatening emergencies. I have spent the last 3 years working in the Medical Retrieval Unit working alongside Rescue Paramedics, Helicopter Pilots and Emergency Consultants. I recently returned to work as an operational paramedic responding to emergency calls in our community. In September last year I moved myself and my beautiful boys up to sunny Queensland to be closer to family and we havent looked back. At Rescueblue we specialise in paediatric first aid. We aim to empower parents with the essential life saving skills need to save a child's life. We make our workshops fit in with the busy lifestyle of new parents so we offer both private and public options. Private being that we will send a paramedic to you to conduct training in the comfort of your own home. Public sessions are held every month, where anyone come and drop by. Our next public session is scheduled for 28 NOV, BRISBANE 💙👶🏻🚑 www.rescueblue.com.au #saveachildslife #rescueblue @rescueblue_littleaid
...

Summer is just around the corner 🔆 In 2019 emergency services responded to over 1000 incidents of children trapped in locked cars. Most of these accidental lock-ins happen when parents give the child keys to play with, and they accidentally press the lock button. Here are our top tips to avoid accidental lock-ins:
🚘 Avoid letting your child play with keys.
🚘 If they are unintentionally locked into vehicle seek assistance immediately (especially in hot weather) as hyperthermia is a life threatening condition.
🚘 Put your keys on a lanyard and where it around your neck while buckling your child in. This prevents you from accidentally locking your car with your keys inside. @rescueblue_littleaid #rescueblue #saveyourchildslifetoday 👶🏻💙🚑

DRY DROWNING Vs SECONDARY DROWNING 💦 Parents are forever asking us about dry drowning and secondary drowning. But few people realise that they are actually two separate conditions!

Dry drowning occurs when a small amount of water enters the airway and causes the vocal cords to spasm and close. No water actually enter the lungs. If this was to happen you would notice it straight away. It wouldn’t happen out of the blue days later.

On the other hand, secondary drowning is when water gets into the lungs irritates the inner lining. Fluid can build up causing a condition called pulmonary oedema.This process can occur up to 24 hours after the event. You would notice your child having difficulty breathing that progressively gets worse.

BUT the good news is these types of submersion injuries are rare!

If you suspect that your child has inhaled some water and they begin to show any of the following signs it is best to get them checked out at a hospital as soon as possible:
💦 Respiratory stress
💦 High temperature
💦 Fatigue

✨TESTIMONIAL✨”Absolutely fantastic! Jess came to our home to conduct the Infant First Aid Course on the Sunshine Coast and was a wealth of knowledge and friendliness from the moment she walked in the door. Unlike other first aid courses we have both done in the past, this one was easy to understand, full of information we had no idea about and left us feeling confident. Jess answered all of our questions without hesitation. I would highly recommend Rescueblue First Aid Courses on the Sunshine Coast with Jess.

Thanks again Jess, we're very happy that we booked in with you, we're feeling more confident with our little man than ever.” ~ Tiaki Baker ✨#realreview #saveachildslife #rescueblue @rescueblue_jess

💦WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO STAY HYDRATED DURING PREGNANCY? Hydration is always important, and during pregnancy those fluids are even more precious than usual. Your body needs water to form amniotic fluid, produce extra blood volume, build new tissue, carry nutrients, help indigestion and flush out your wastes and toxins 💦 📸 by Sydney based local mumma to be @annaheinrich1 💙👶🏻🚑 @rescueblue_littleaid #saveyourchildslife #rescueblue

WHY RESCUEBLUE?
🚑 All of our trainers are operational paramedics, which means that they are not retired ex medical professionals. They are up to date & practice what they preach every single day!
🚑 For you as parents first aid starts at home. Not in the hospital setting with hospital equipment and teams of doctors & nurses around you. As paramedics, we are used to the unpredictable nature of the prehospital environment. Paramedics are the experts in prehospital care!
🚑 We are parents ourselves and understand the stressors related to seeing your child in the most vulnerable moments. We teach you how to keep a hold on your emotions and act quickly when moment count! #saveyourchildslifenow #rescueblue 💙👶🏻🚑
