“Keep Them Alive!” Emergency Medical Trauma Training Course
April 6th, 6 – 9 pm’ish
When an emergency medical situation happens, are you trained and prepared to save your own life or others?
If you live and work in modern America, an ambulance and professional medical care is likely anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes away, possibly further. For those who travel to or live outside established areas, whether in or outside the U.S., in-depth medical help may be hours or days away.
Those minutes or hours count.
Medically speaking, seconds count.
Life can end quickly waiting for an ambulance or other treatment.
Can you handle major injuries until professional medical treatment arrives?
Do you too see the need to learn how to apply self-aid or medical aid to others when life may depend on your ability to apply that immediate aid? Is your life and the lives of those you love worth your time and effort to invest in a day of medical training that will last you for the rest of your life and may even save your life?
For those attending this training course, we look forward to meeting you and helping you prepare for the unexpected medical emergencies life sometimes forces on us. It is our sincere hope these skill are never needed…but just in case, we are committed to passing on life-saving information so you can help yourself or others.
