Objective Action

In cases of natural disasters (floods, earthquakes, large scale accidents), response time is of paramount importance. An amount of 80 % of those being rescued are saved by people who are standing near them, an amount of 15% are saved by the organized state and only 5% by rescuers or other groups. Statistically speaking, 90% of the help provided is by people with no training. The aim of these seminars is to prepare and train the citizens of our city to prevent and deal with potential everyday dangers and emergency health issues in ways and using skills that will make them capable to help themselves, their families and their fellow citizens.

 

Target Audience

The seminars targeted at any kind of groups of people living in a small village, companies, groups of the same proffession, and generally wherever we are asked to help or inform.

 

Duration

One or two seminars of 3 - 5 hours


Description

After contact with the head of an association, company or village, we make a plan/schedule of the training time and place. Following that, a 3-hour presentation is carried out about specific topics for the identification and management of risks such as trauma, burn, choking, fainting etc., or the recognition of loss of breathing and its consequences, how to call an ambulance, CPR and the use of Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). The presentation is experiential and involves rescue workers who apply the skills in real time and is followed by the participants themselves taking part.
