Action First Aid is an interactive first aid agency. They have made quite the name for themselves in the industry for providing customers with exceptional First Aid, CPR & AED training along with a professional line of AED Products and Services.
They encourage first aid learning to be fun, informative and above all easy to put in motion should there ever be a need for it! With over 10 years of experience, Action First Aid has been implementing AED programs across Canada and has been involved with some of the largest deployments of AEDs in the workplace. They are also licensed by Health Canada to sell and distribute defibrillators within Canada.
At the Toronto Women’s Show this past November, our very own Nicole spoke to Trish from Action First Aid about how important it is to have first aid knowledge. She talks about one major life saving tool – the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and how easy it is to use during a cardiac arrest episode. If used within the first 6 minutes, the chance of survival jumps from 60% to 80%. This is why it is so important to have one in your home or workplace.
Trish also mentions that the Heimlich is another useful lifesaving tool to have. Choking has become increasingly more common and if you are prepared you could very well save a life.
