BASIC FIRST AID AND EMERGENCY MEDICAL RESPONSE (EMR)
First aid just like the words say it, it is that help provided to people before anything could be done. So in the case of a accident, injuries, disaster it is important to provide this help to minimize the possibility of lose of life and to save lives.
Basic First Aid is responding to an emergency situation – heart attacks, bleeding, drowning, choking, poisoning, electrocution, spinal injuries, eye injuries and scalds and burns are typical situations where having a basic knowledge of what to do- knowing proper first aid procedures- you can be the hero. . Accidents happen, always unexpectedly, having a basic knowledge of first aid is just being wise. And having a first aid kit or disaster preparedness kit is just good common sense.
Safety is an awareness of your surroundings and a healthy fear of unstable situations. By its very nature, an emergency is an unstable situation. If everything were truly under control, nothing bad would’ve happened in the first place. If, for example, you see a person struck by a car in a crosswalk, do not rush headlong into the street to see if they’re injured. You will no doubt find yourself lying next to them after being struck by the next car barreling down the road
Everyone must be aware of the necessity of a first aid kit in their home and car. Businesses corporations must have necessary first aid supplies, located somewhere in their facility. If the building is large, they should have separate kits in each section.
It is important to have first aid kits, because they allow someone who is injured, to be rapidly treated with basic first aid, before they can be properly treated at the local hospital. Therefore in emergency circumstances, someone should know where the nearest first aid kit is located and how to use the contents within it
First Aid as the term implies is the immediate treatment on the spot to a person who has been injured or is ill
