About First Aid

First aid is the initial care provided to someone who has suddenly fallen ill, or who has been injured, until more advanced care is provided, or the person recovers.  Immediate and effective first aid may reduce the severity of the injury or illness and promote recovery.  Knowledge of first aid is important for everyday life at home, work, or in the community.  Not every incident requiring first aid will be life-threatening, however, the more people with basic first aid knowledge, the better the chances are of saving a life!
