First Care Provider : First There – First Care
The Chino Valley Fire District will be holding a First Care Provider workshop on August 12, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Chino Valley Fire Training Facility, located on 5096 Schaefer Ave., in Chino.
Would you know what to do in the moments after a disaster? Wherever tragedy strikes, First Care Providers are there. The immediate responding public are the first ones to brave danger and selflessly provide medical care to those injured.
Are you ready to step in and help save a life? Who are these First Care Providers? Teachers, security guards, sales clerks, by-standers, everyday people with no medical training who make a difference and save lives. Everyday people like you!
Did you know that YOU are the most important link in the chain of survival? Time means everything to the injured, and seconds are critical when victims lie bleeding. Our EMS systems are the best in the world, but there are times when they realistically can’t get there fast enough. From natural disasters and accidents to active violent incidents. It is difficult for traditional first responders (Police, Fire, EMS) to arrive and provide treatment in under 5 minutes. But you can — long before their arrival.
Skills that you will learn are:
- Bleeding Control
- Airway Management
- Proper Communications
- Self-survival in Disaster Environments
- and much more!
