Need Of First Aid
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies introduced World First Aid Day in 2000 with the motive to spread awareness about the importance of First Aid. When we hear First Aid, many of us would think of that small box with a red cross lying in the utility drawer. But, First Aid is more than that. It is all about providing immediate help in case of unfortunate events that cause injuries or illness, which can be fatal at times. It is not a replacement for medical services or professional help, but an emergency measure, which when implemented can save life and even reduce recovery time for the patient. By taking up training in First Aid, on an individual or an organisation level, you can extend a hand of help in events that lead to issues that need immediate medical help. The importance of First Aid was realised in the 1800s and remains essential even today. Thus, this World First Aid Day educate yourself so you can lend a helping hand in times of need.
