But back to the day at hand.. I decide to take the course, for several reasons, 1. We live out in the country, and the time required for help to get to us is probably 15- 20 min. That does not seem like a long time, unless you are ill, and in maybe many cities with traffic that could be the same amount of time.. But it is vital when an injury occurs that help is right away.
I could go into many details, but I won't. What I would like to do is stress, that for your well being, and the well being of your family, if you have the opportunity to participate in such a class, DO IT.
There was so much information that was important to hear, changes that have been made to improve chances of survival. I hope I NEVER have to use any of this knowledge, but I am better equipped mentally to help in an emergency, and that is what it is all about.
Check locally, is it best to call 911, where does your cell call go, vs. your house phone. Have the phone number posted where it is easy to read. Sierra Ambulance, has a magnet you can put on the outside of your refrig. In case you are alone in the house put any medical information there also.
Some of my quilter friends have said their information is in their Freezer.. so pull out the info, and put it on the door to the refrig.
Let us all be prepared to help each other.
