First Aid Basics (Non-Certification) (4/1/24 TTh 1pET)

Have you ever wondered what is and is not an emergency? When you should or should not call 9-1-1? How to decide if you should go to the doctor, a walk-in clinic, urgent care, or the emergency room? What even is urgent care? We'll talk about all this and more in our new class. We will focus on useable information like how to tell if an area is safe before running in to help--you can't help anyone if you get hurt too! We'll talk about how and when to call for emergency services and how to clearly relay information to first responders without panicking. Please note: this is NOT a first aid/CPR certification course.

This course will run from 4/1-5/5/2024
Seminars will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays 1p to 2p Eastern Time.

Instructor: Sara Brown, sbrown@pslstrive.org
