A First Aider In Every Home

This programme is one of the community services of the Malaysian Red Crescent Society.

The OBJECTIVES of this programme are:

  1. to provide first-aid training to the community
  2. to help people feel more confident of their ability to respond to an Emergency & how to act appropriately in such an event.

It is our mission that by the year 2005, at least one member in every Malaysian fanily would have been trained in First-Aid & Life Saving skills, thereby contributing to promote the concept of a caring society.

Staff and students in schools, colleges & institutions of learning, employees of Government Offices & Statutory bodies, youth organisations, service clubs & associations, organised groups in housing estates, kampongs & longhouses can approach the Malaysian Red Crescent Society at their respective districts to request for the first-aid course to be conducted.

The course will be six and a half hours.

People need to know what to do in an emergency before professional medical help arrives. Since YOU are the person likely to be the first on the scene of an emergency, it is important that you know how to recognise emergencies and how to respond. The course will prepare you to make decisions regarding first-aid care and how to act on those decisions.

The first CRITICAL step in an emergency depends on someone who will take appropriate action. After completing the Course, you should be able to:

  1. Recognise when an emergency has occurred
  2. Follow a 3-step action plan for any emergency
  3. Provide care for injuries or sudden illness until professional medical help arrives

The course clarifies when and how to call for emergency medical help, eliminating the confusion that is frequently a factor in any emergency.

Certificate of Attendance will be issued to the participants at the conclusion of the Course.
