First Aid

Basic First Aid training gives you the skills and confidence you need to intervene when someone around you becomes injured.

What is First Aid?

First aid training teaches you what to do in the event of an injury. You’ll learn how to provide immediate care until professional medical help arrives. From treating burns to anaphylaxis, first aid covers a variety of important topics.

Why First Aid?

When someone is injured, it can be a scary situation for everyone. First aid training gives you the ability to help instead of feeling helpless. Getting certified in first aid is a great way to take care of your family, friends, and community.

How is First Aid Done?

You can use first aid to assess and treat injuries and emergencies. You’ll need to assess the situation, call for help, and administer immediate care. Specific treatments vary depending on the situation.
