Basic First Aid

Are you prepared for an Emergency?

I can save a life...   ...can you?    Everyone should be able to provide Basic First Aid in the event of an emergency. Most people will eventually encounter an emergency situation involving themselves or another person. A delay of as little as four minutes can mean eminent death when a person's heart stops.  Therefore, how a bystander reacts can mean the difference between life and death.  While Emergency Medical Services may not always be readily available or able to respond as quickly as necessary, with very Basic First Aid Training, anyone can save a life, including you!

What Is Basic First Aid?

Basic First Aid is the immediate care given to an injured or suddenly ill person. Basic First Aid does not take the place of proper professional medical treatment.  It consists only of temporary assistance until competent medical care is obtained, or until the chance for recovery without medical care is assured.  In some cases, the most important part of Basic First Aid is knowing when (and whom) to notify in the event of an emergency. For minor injuries or illness, Basic First Aid may serve as a means to prevent further injury, infection, or other complications and may help avoid a trip to the hospital emergency room!

When properly applied, Basic First Aid can mean the difference between life and death, rapid recovery or long hospitalization, temporary disability or permanent injury. Basic First Aid is about more than just taking action to assist others; it also includes the things that people can do to help themselves. In some cases, knowing what to do is just as important as knowing what not to do!

The ability to recognize a serious medical emergency is as important as the knowledge of how to react. Prompt recognition can and does save lives! So Basic First Aid can mean many things, but most importantly it means knowing not to panic in an emergency! PAB Basic First Aid Training will provide you the necessary skills you’ll need to recognize, react and respond properly, keeping a stressful emergency situation under control and having confidence that you can make a big difference in someone’s life.
