It makes a difference in your community
First Aid is incredibly helpful in many situations: when someone ingests a harmful substance, has a stroke, suffers a heart attack, has a seizure, is involved in a car accident or during a natural disaster. Having someone present who is trained in First Aid can change a high stress emergency into a controlled incident. Become an everyday hero – sign up for training and make a real difference in your neighbourhood!
It’s more than just a lifesaver
We know that First Aid knowledge can result in people’s lives being saved during a crisis. But having this training can also help reduce a person’s recovery and prevent them from having a disability. Knowing how to remain calm in an emergency can reduce trauma for everyone involved and providing patients with comfort can be a defining factor in their recovery.
It can prevent the situation from escalating
In many incidents, if the patient doesn’t receive care immediately, their situation can decline at a rapid pace. Providing basic care can stabilize a patient until emergency medical services arrive. First Aid teaches you how to utilize common household items as tools if a First Aid kit is not available, equipping you with the know-how to cope in many tough situations.
It creates the confidence needed to act
Having First Aid knowledge gives you the ability to react and take control of an incident or accident. Having this understanding might even boost your confidence in other ways and make you a more well-rounded and dynamic individual.
It supports everyday safety
A trained First Aider is better able to assess their surroundings. They have a heightened awareness of hazards and create a sense of safety and well-being in everyday situations, whether it’s on the bus, at the grocery store or at a family gathering! Having more people who are capable of basic First Aid makes it easier for first responders and hospitals to help the injured and suffering.
