Prepare for Fall & Winter Now!

September 1, 2013

From: Allen James

Fall and winter are on the horizon and school is back in session. What a summer! Just beyond the horizon are the holidays. Yes, they are coming! Our view of the future calendar leads us to the question of planning for any CPR training for the balance 2013. Remember, in the last two weeks of November, most of December, plus the first two weeks of January, it will be difficult to schedule personnel for emergency response training. So plan well ahead and call us with any questions.

Remember, we have quality instruction with a focus on orchestrating learning that includes a process on how to ”think” about an emergency and then providing a “tool box” of CPR and First Aid skills. This training prepares your employees to respond to both corporate and individual emergencies and enables them to prepare their families for natural disasters. What a wonderful benefit to pass onto your employees’ families.

The Fall & Winter Threats are Colds and Flus

Doctors have begun their fall campaign advising flu vaccinations for children and the elderly. This is also something that companies might consider to maintain operations during a bad cold and flu season. It is not just vaccinations that can protect employees and families from the flu but behavior changes as well. Consider the following:

  • Do not go to work or school if you are sick!
  • Stop sharing the community popcorn bowl with your hands!
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds!
  • Cover your month with a cloth covered arm when coughing or sneezing!
  • Take care of yourself; reduce stress, get lots of sleep, stay warm, practice your work place safety programs!
  • Remember, children are germ bags. They need to get sick to build their immune systems, but, they need to be taught how not to spread colds and flu. Good luck!

Hands Only CPR

September 7, 2013, the Press Democrat had an article about Hands Only CPR. This can make a big difference to the adult cardiac victim. I refer you to my July 31, 2011 newsletter on my website for details. This does not apply to children or infants nor is it a replacement for formal CPR training. If you see an adult drop with no signs of life, begin chest compression of at least 2 inches deep at a rate of 100 compressions per minute with no breaths until EMS arrives. Be prepared! Take a CPR course!

Be Safe! As a first responder, your part in this process is crucial; that is why good training is critical. We can provide that training. Remember - Life Matters.
