Benefits of being trained in CPR:
- Saving a life and being a hero
- Possible reduction in insurance premium
- Early CPR within 3-5 minutes after collapse can result in high long-term survival rates
- The value of early CPR by bystanders is that it "buys time" by maintaining blood flow and oxygen to the heart and brain during a cardiac arrest
Benefits of being trained in First Aid:
First aid is essential in emergency cases. Knowing what action needs to be taken to control an emergency can make the difference between life and death. Emergencies occur all around us, in all spheres of life. Someone may be injured at work, school or at home. When this happens, first aid basics will equip anyone around the injured person to reduce the danger posed by the accident.
For example, if a child breaks a limb during play time at school, an attending teacher may perform first aid to help reset the bones and reduce any pain and discomfort the child may be experiencing. In cases where the injury causes profuse bleeding, first aid is necessary to reduce the chances of extensive blood loss. Ambulances hardly arrive immediately, and first aid makes all the difference in the time it takes the ambulance to arrive.
