Introduction to First Aid
Medical emergencies can occur any time and in any setting. Incidents such as falls, road accidents, and sudden illnesses like a heart attack or stroke can be life threatening if medical aid is not immediately available.
If faced with an emergency, it is critical that you know who and when to call, what kind of care to provide and how to administer care until emergency services arrive and take over. A person trained in first aid can provide help that can save the casualty’s life.
