What is Event First-Aid?
If you have any questions, concerns, comments or would like to receive a quotation for our special event First-Aid service, please free to CONTACT US anytime.
CANADIAN FIRST-AID TRAINING Ltd. was partially founded with the understanding that organizations will need some form of emergency or first-aid services as part of a proactive risk management program. Any organization that develops or sponsors an event, which hosts a large gathering of people, is automatically at risk to the possibility of an accident or medical emergency.
When a medical emergency occurs, timing can make the difference between life and death. No matter where you are geographically, local EMS services generally cannot respond fast enough to save someone from a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). With less than 5% of victims surviving an SCA ordeal, studies show that the first 5-10 minutes are critical to survival. Thus, having first-aider's on-site can and does save lives.
What can we do for your event?
CANADIAN FIRST-AID TRAINING Ltd. provides on-site First-Aiders who can administer Basic Life Support and deal with most types of medical emergencies. By providing on-scene treatment, they can decide if further medical care is required and subsequently contact local EMS services to arrange for transport and advanced care. We do not replace EMS / 911, however we facilitate and assess emergencies on a case by case basis and decide the next course of action depending on the medical emergency.
