Regardless of your current job or profession, CPR and first aid training can further anyone’s skillset, especially in emergency situations. In fact, about 400,000 people die annually from cardiac arrest and performing CPR can reduce these unnecessary deaths. No matter the situation, if you are CPR and first aid certified, you will be able to help save someone’s life, dress a wound, or help a child in need. At OC Safety, we would rather everyone be safe than sorry, so we offer CPR and first aid courses and certifications.
Prevent Worsen Symptoms
Depending on the situation, if an individual does not receive immediate care, their symptoms may increase and their condition may worsen. Proper first aid care could mean the difference between extensive hospital care or not. And, these situations may pop up more frequently than you would expect. For example, if you have children, care for family members, or work in an office, anything could happen to those around you and immediate care could be necessary.
The Majority of Cardiac Arrests Happen at Home
Unfortunately, the American Heart Association states that about 80% of cardiac arrests occur in the home. This is extremely problematic because with every minute that passes, the victim’s chance of survival decreases on average between 7-10%. However, if you are CPR certified, you can greatly improve the likelihood of survival by acting immediately. Loved ones who are able to perform CPR in a moments notice can save their family member’s life.
Be an Asset to Your Community
By taking a CPR and first aid course, you will be more valuable to your community. Not enough people know these life-saving skills in our communities, unfortunately. If more people take CPR classes and have these skill sets, then the community will be a safe place for everyone. People who go into cardiac arrest or need first aid will have a better chance of survival.
