Life-threatening emergencies can happy fast and emergency responders aren’t always nearby. Do you want to stand by and see people suffer because you do not know what to do? Why get involved when someone is badly injured? According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 46. Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent a person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. You Are the Help Until Help Arrives!
