    Objective: The main aim of the first aid is to save the life, prevent degradation of the situation and to promote the recovery. The adequate knowledge on first aid can promote the chances of survival of the injured person. This study was conducted to assess the knowledge, attitude, and practice of secondary school and intermediate students toward the first aid. Methods: It is a prospective study conducted in randomly selected secondary schools and intermediate colleges of Piler Mandal, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh, for a period of 3 months using a validated questionnaire which consists of 28 questions to assess their knowledge, attitude, and practice about first aid. All statistical analyses were performed using Microsoft Excel 2010 and GraphPad Prism 7.0 software. Results and Discussion: The goal of first aid is to preserve life, prevent further injury and promote recovery. Statistically significant difference was not found in the knowledge (P = 0.6204), attitude (P = 0.2351), and practice (P = 0.9508) among secondary school and intermediate students about first aid measures. Conclusion: The knowledge, attitude, and practice of secondary school and intermediate students on first aid were found to be adequate, but still, it is the responsibility of each and every school to provide training on first aid measures and also to have fire extinguisher in their school campus.
