First aid saves lives

 

Recent polling by the Red Cross shows that nearly 40 percent of Canadians say they have been in an emergency situation where they have had to perform first aid, however, only 18 percent are currently certified. 

First aid training provides more than the knowledge and skills to effectively respond — it also provides the confidence to act when needed. First Aid for Life offers a wide variety of first aid and CPR training courses, empowering first-aiders to act on, prevent, and manage life’s emergencies.

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for Canadians between the ages of one and 44. Having the skills to act immediately in an emergency situation can help save lives and reduce the impact of injury, but the knowledge also helps prevent injuries in the first place.
