Education for Schools
Is your School ready?
Natural disasters, traumatic events, and other emergencies can occur at any time and disrupt the daily routine of families, schools, and communities. Human-made emergencies include bombings or shootings, while natural disasters encompass severe weather events, earthquakes, and tsunamis.
What about incidents and accidents?
Emergency management emphasises the importance of establishing priorities to act quickly and efficiently in response to disasters. The current literature indicates that the first five minutes before emergency personnel arrive at a are vital in improving patient outcomes and emergency preparedness.
As we routinely see in the media, ambulance arrival times are increasing year on year, simply due to the service being overwhelmed, understaffed and under resourced.
How would your school/ Teachers be able to act in an emergency, such as a life threatening bleed due to anyone of the methods we have raised? Current first aid courses DO NOT prepare individuals for todays modern threats that we could see.
