Solve the Mystery

Your current location is: First Aid Tent

The first aid tent is a lightweight blue tent. The door is zipped up but you soon unzip it and enter the tent. Inside is a camp chair, a small table and bedding roll.

On the table is a locked first aid box; the lock has an 8 digit combination. Next to the box is a folded piece of paper. You unfold the paper and inside it says:

  1. The minimum number of minutes a burn should be placed in cold water.
  2. The emergency phone number in the UK.
  3. Number of back slaps to give if someone is choking.
  4. The minimum length of time to pinch a nose with a nosebleed.

Could this be the code to the first aid box? Once you’ve worked out the answers, pick which combination to use.
