My family thinks I’m crazy. They make faces at me when I give them a 1st Aid kit, One-Way CPR mask, flashlight, wool blanket or set of emergency reflectors for the trunk of their car for a birthday gift or stocking stuffer. I’ve even been called a “prepper!”
However, having worked in the field as a Paramedic and Trauma Flight Nurse, I’ve seen the difference that training, planning and the proper equipment can make to assure the best possible outcome for the victim(s) of an emergency.
Promise me……you put it off for another day! Cindy Tait, Training Specialist - Center for Healthcare Education.
