A FREE three hour course on how to help in an emergency until emergency services arrive.
Trauma is the leading cause of death in Americans under age 46. Life threatening (traumatic) injuries requires immediate action to stop someone from dying. While the nation’s emergency responders are quick to arrive, any delay between injury and the initiation of care can result in death. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care, which should focus on the most essential actions, including moving someone away from danger, stopping life threatening bleeding, positioning the injured so they can breath, keeping them warm and providing comfort.
This class is designed to educate the public about the important role it plays in providing these potentially lifesaving interventions prior to the arrival of emergency services.
