Be a Hero! Save a Life!
Sudden heart events-mainly heart attacks and cardiac arrests-outside of a medical setting is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Meanwhile, untold numbers of people will require on-the-spot first aid. It can take at least eight minutes for 911 first responders to arrive. But you can help-even save the life of-a stricken individual by springing into action to assist.
G & G Safety Services is your go-to company for classes that teach cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), how to use an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and ways to provide first aid. The company's founder, William Greene, is a longtime authority on and instructor in live-saving practices. He and his team of experts can give you the hands-on training you need to properly and effectively respond to a variety of medical emergencies. Their classes will give you the confidence and knowledge to help others in dire need.
In addition to the satisfaction that comes with assisting people in need of immediate medical attention, knowing these procedures provides you with a feeling of empowerment and confidence, creates a safer environment for everyone around you and can be impressive if you're applying for a job in the medical field or nursing. You can help anyone around you, from family members to strangers on the street. Most malls, fitness centers, sports venues, stores, schools, workplaces and major transportation terminals are equipped with AEDs. They are often near water fountains or restroom areas. Also, if there is a number of people around who know CPR, you can join them in taking giving chest compression and rescue breaths to a victim.
