Everyday, countless lives are saved because of first aid and CPR training. The upward trend in emergency situations and catastrophes have made knowledge of first aid a set of skills a person must never be without. Many workplaces require participants to have first aid certification. Toronto First Aid training courses are focused on safety and basic first aid, inclusive of CPR and AED training. These provide fundamental skills and techniques in the latest first aid and CPR standards as provided by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the American Heart Association (AHA). Trainees will become familiar with how to utilize automated external defibrillators (AED), personal protective equipment and the products found in a common first aid kit. This provider does not solely provide first aid and CPR courses. It also provides safety training (public and on-line classes), food handling courses, supplies first aid equipment and attendants for large or small events.

The Importance of First Aid
“Let’s face it, accidents, unforeseen situations, and emergencies often happen. No matter how careful one can be, even though how safe an environment one can claim it to be, accidents still happen. What would you do if your toddler accidentally burns herself from the oven handle? What would you do if your sister accidentally cuts herself while cutting a potato? What would you do if you witness your grandfather all of a sudden just fall unconscious? You may immediately call a neighbor or anyone to ask for help. Allowing the situation to remain unattended is costly, especially in situations like profuse bleeding, seizures, or heart attacks. Every second counts. Did you know that without CPR, his chances of survival decreases by 7-10% every minute? Pretty significant right? And so from my point of view, as a nurse, and more importantly as a mother and a wife, as a daughter and a sister, as a friend and as a member of society, I do believe that each citizen should know, even at least the basic knowledge of first aid. Knowledge and skill in basic first aid, can mean the difference between life and death.”
