We’ve come to our final month in ReadyTogether! Throughout this year we’ve utilized the information in Do1Thing to prepare for disasters one topic per month and one step at a time. In December we focus on learning basics in first aid. If a major disaster prevents or delays first responders in coming to you and your family, your preparations will become all the more important.
An emergency can happen at any time and any place. Many public places have a first aid kit, oxygen, or an AED (automated external defibrillator) to treat people. These items can only save lives if someone knows how to use them. Actions you take in the first few minutes after an injury or other medical incident may save someone’s life.
