EMERGENCY RESPONDER (CIVILIAN)
In the case of an emergency situation, bystanders are always going to be first on scene before professional Emergency Responders arrive. Injuries where blood loss is a factor can cause death within few minutes. Emergency Responder Training focuses on teaching individuals’ basic life-saving skills, giving them the ability to save a life until trained medical professionals arrive. This training includes bleeding control, tourniquet training, and haemostatic dressing applications. Preventing significant blood loss in an injured person plays a vital role in prolonging their life in the case of serious injury.
The Emergency Responder programme was created in response to the increase in terror attacks, stabbing rampage, gun violence and incidents resulting in mass casualties.
The programme is aimed at improving survival of victims suffering blood loss caused by life-threatening injuries. Due to the rapid rate at which a person can bleed to death (less than five minutes), it is incredibly difficult for Emergency Responders to arrive on scene within the vital time frame. If the injury is not treated immediately, the chances of survival significantly reduce for someone suffering from rapid blood loss. Emergency Responder Training aims to breach this gap, providing individuals with the necessary training to help prevent fatal blood loss before emergency and trained medical professionals can attend the scene.Enroll Now
