Preparedness: First Aid to Others…..?

Many years ago, I went through a First Responder training piece over several months and was mentally prepared to render aid in an emergency situation until more advanced care arrived. 

Years have passed and I am no longer in the arena that required such care….or am I?

The other day I couldn’t even find a band-aid in the house let alone any other supplies. I no longer carry that certain bag that had everything needed for a First Responder in my rig on a daily basis. Yes, I have it for outings and camping trips but not with me, in town, if I needed it. It is easy to rationalize the probable…EMT’s and Firemen are  minutes away. But in many areas they are not 5 minutes away, they are much farther away.

First-Responder

Point of all this is my yearly reminder to be prepared. Carry the survival gear on outings. And, renew your knowledge with current CPR practices…yes, it has changed every few years so if you haven’t had a class in five years it has changed since then. As I listen to a fire rig siren through the open window, in the distance, I think I should not just carry the gear but refresh myself with the basics again re wounds, shock, CPR, defibs etc. How about you?
