Do 1 Thing - December Update

First Aid - Do1Thing

Do 1 Thing is a 12-month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies or disasters.


Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Many people don’t know where to start, so they never start at all. With Do 1 Thing you can take small steps that make a big difference in an emergency. Be sure to SIGN UP for their free program to help get started on being prepared! 


Goal For December:  Be prepared to give first aid while waiting for an ambulance.

An emergency can happen at any time and any place. Many public places have a first aid kit, oxygen, or an AED (automated external defibrillator) to treat people. These items can only save lives if someone knows how to use them. Actions you take in the first few minutes after an injury or other medical incident may save someone’s life.

Tasks:

Know what to do while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.

Make or buy first aid kits for your home and car.

Take training in first aid, CPR, AED, or pet first aid.
