    You can never tell when accidents may happen.  In a split second a person could suffer a heart attack, choke, or drown.  Considering that this are life threatening conditions, immediate response is necessary. There is a saying that it is better to know first aid and not need and know first aid and not need it.  I surely agree considering that the moment a person stops breathing due to an accident or illness, his brain cells start to die in just a couple of minutes. It is imperative that he or she should be given immediate care.  By learning First aid, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, and the use of Automated External Defibrillator, the person chances of survival can greatly increased. This kind of training is highly recommended for everyone.  You will never know that the life you save maybe that of your family, or your friends, or your own.

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for the reply. I am new here and doesn't know much about the whole set up.  Although I'm beginning to learn the basics.  May I know the reason for your personal certification on the course? Is it just for personal use or perhaps a requirement in your job?  Hope you don't mind my asking.  By the way do you have a fans club?  If there is, how can I join? I hope I am not of a trouble.  I'm just trying to gain new friends and learn more ideas as well as share my ideas.

    thanks!   smile

    I saw you joined my "fan club."  Thanks!

    The reason is simple... I need to be qualified on a continual basis for my profession (personal trainer) and it helps keep me in check with the latest news and findings that I can pass onto my clients.

    Now I understand. Well anyway, just in case you need some help with some procedures, I am opening a hub on it. You can visit it from time to time.  I am actually a paramedic and presently the tactical medic of our SWAT unit here.  Likewise, I am an accredited instructor on First aid, CPR, and Pro CPR by the Emergency Care And Safety Institute (ECSI) U.S.A.  I'm not saying I am an expert but I am always ready to assist for as long as I can.

    I agree with the posting above "This kind of training is highly recommended for everyone.  You will never know that the life you save maybe that of your family, or your friends, or your own".  I live in Florida and when a hurricane hits you must be prepared.  People do not realize but once the winds hit a certain speed EMS - emergency personnel are not permitted to respond to calls for safety reasons.  Once the storm has passed, then EMS can assist but often times roads are blocked with fallen trees and downed powerlines, telephone lines can also be down making communications difficult not to mention the volume of calls EMS will receive after a strom.

    Everyone needs to be prepared to help themselves and their families.  As I mentioned, in Florida we have hurricanes, in other parts of the country it's earthquakes, tornados, floods, etc.  These natural disasters are one reason to learn CPR, AED and First Aid.  The other reason is for every day occurances, traffic accidents, medical emergencies, etc.  Just a few months ago I had to assist with CPR and use an AED - Automated External Defibrillator on a person in Cardiac Arrest in the Atlanta GA airport.  Check out the news article at 

    Learning CPR, First Aid and preparing is essential.  Set up a first aid kit in your home, car and boat.  Be proactive and be safe.
