You Can Teach Disaster First Aid
For Schools, Employee Safety, Community, CERT / AmeriCorps, or as a Small Business

This one-day course contains the critical essentials to save lives in the first minutes and hours of a disaster, the time when the most lives are either saved or lost. County & State Disaster Response Agencies have already informed us that for most of the injured, the waiting period for help when 911 is overwhelmed will be from 24 hours to 3 days.

Most of the deaths will occur in the first 3 to 30 minutes. In a study by the College of Emergency Surgeons in 1983, about 40% of those who had a chance to survive but died in the first hours or days, this study found, could have been kept alive by simple first aid actions, if someone there knew what to do, and could do it quickly. Disaster First Aid is designed to save those lives, that are needlessly lost in large multi-casualty emergencies.

Disaster First Aid© is designed for citizen response to major emergencies like earthquakes, explosions, destructive storms, building collapse, terrorist attack. The DFA course is complete but concise, practical and do-able by almost anyone from age 14 to seniors. It teaches the same disaster protocols used by Fire Department and ambulance EMTs and Paramedics, scaled-down for citizen level.

With the INSTRUCTOR KIT, nurses, coaches, EMTs, Paramedics, firefighters, camp counselors, Eagle Scouts, lifeguards, CPR & First Aid instructors, and ordinary citizens in all walks of life will be able to teach this course.
