First Aid Knowledge in the Workplace and Community
No matter where you are—at home, at work, out running errands—there is a chance that someone near you may be injured or experience a medical emergency. If this person doesn’t have someone with them who knows how to treat injuries or sudden physical conditions, they will be utterly helpless unless they can receive aid from a knowledgeable, quick-thinking stranger. You can be this kind stranger and save the day if you receive training in basic first aid.
What Can Be Treated With Basic First Aid?
Many things can happen to people unexpectedly. They can experience severe bleeding and shock after being cut by a sharp object. They can experience soft-tissue injuries or injuries to their bones, joints and muscles after falling down or colliding with something, be it a stationary object or one that is fast-moving. A medical emergency like a seizure, heart attack, stroke, choking, or severe allergic reaction can occur. A heat or cold-related injury or illness can occur due to fire, a winter storm, or handing hot objects. All of these problems are ones you can face with confidence if you are trained in basic first aid.
What is Included in Basic First Aid Classes?
If you take part in the Basic First Aid for the Community and Workplace program, you will learn basic first aid through mastery of skills that meet a series of objectives through DVD presentations and hundreds of PowerPoint slides. This multimedia format makes learning easier and more engaging than ever. After finishing the program, you will be prepared to save lives and help victims to recover as quickly as possible.
Everyone Should Know Basic First Aid
Time is of the essence when an emergency or accident occurs, and knowing and applying first aid skills is much more practical than panicking, calling 911 and waiting for an ambulance to arrive. You don’t want to be that helpless stranger that has to watch while someone chokes or has a seizure without being able to do anything to help, leaving them to be carried off by an ambulance to a hospital that will charge their family thousands of dollars for treatment. Start learning first aid today and be prepared when an accident or emergency occurs: it could happen to a stranger, it could happen to a family member, and it could even happen to you.
