If an emergency occurs, do you know how to respond to help the person in danger as quickly and safely as possible? If you’re not entirely sure, you’re not alone. Most people don’t have basic first aid training or CPR training. However, CPR training courses can be essential for keeping those around you safe. Here are just a few reasons why CPR training courses can benefit public health and safety.

Avoiding Bystander Effect

During emergencies, a problem commonly known as the bystander effect can prevent people from receiving the help they need. When multiple bystanders are present, most people will assume that someone has already called for emergency services, when in fact, no one has yet been contacted. Having basic first aid training, life support knowledge, and CPR training courses prevents this from happening by encouraging bystanders to actively get involved and help.

Faster Treatment Increases Survival

In a medical emergency, quick and effective treatment is crucial to keeping someone safe. This is especially true for life-saving techniques like CPR. In fact, if a bystander does not perform CPR, the survival chances of a victim will decrease 7% in every single minute of delay. Even in cases where emergency medical services are called, being able to perform CPR before they arrive can increase the chances of survival. CPR training courses can help increase the chances of a patient getting faster care, increasing survival odds.

Knowledge To Protect Loved Ones

Finally, many people assume that their friends and family will know how to handle an emergency medical situation if one arises. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. If a medical emergency comes up, it’s better to have the knowledge available so you can protect friends and family. CPR courses, first aid training, and more all help you gain the knowledge you need to help in a medical emergency, especially if you’re the only one at the scene at the time.

CPR training courses are critical for improving public health and safety, and understanding these important life-saving techniques can sometimes be a matter of life or death. For more information on CPR and first aid or to sign up for CPR classes, contact Code 3 Safety & Training today.
