First Aid for Every School

The Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) on Wednesday December 31st, 2014 launched the first ever national first aid policy to regulate the training for a better response to the victims during any natural or man-made disasters or even day to day life.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Saeed Elahi (Chairman PRCS) emphasized the important role of trained youth in the development of the country. He said that the aim of the policy is to organize the first aid services all over the country for their effective response during any disaster.

First Aid training is not only useful in emergencies; it also helps in preventing injuries. When people take First Aid training they reduce their risk of getting injured, as much as 40%, because they become aware of potential dangers and learn to avoid them. Ultimately the cost incurred by Govt on trauma cases, temporary disability, permanent disability could be reduced. The concern here is that after the 2-years time the majority of population is still untrained, not aware what to do in emergency and needs urgent attention. By enabling our students to learn first aid in school will go a considerable way towards promoting this cause. Additionally we will empower our youth to learn skills that could one day save someone’s life and engage them in social work too. This can be extended to involve:

School Staff; and

Parents

First Aid to Save a Life (FATSAL) is ready to share our knowledge, skills and experience to learn first aid to save lives. You can find a class in nearby city in Punjab like Lahore, Rawalpindi/Islamabad, Sialkot, Multan, Faisalabad, etc or other provinces else can arrange an in-house session for your community or at your workplace

Get trained and be prepared for an emergency. 

To Your Safety & Health,
