You Are the Help Until Help Arrives

A life-threatening event can occur at any time. You can make a difference if you are prepared to act quickly and you have the basic skills to keep someone alive until professional help arrives. This webinar will teach you those basic skills. This meeting should be of significant interest to anyone who has an interest in being able to assess a life-threatening event, call 911, provide first aid to include bleeding control, re-position a victim if necessary and otherwise assist until professional help arrives.

This webinar will address the types of violence that can occur and what steps can be taken to prepare for, and respond to, hostile events. Examples of violence at houses of worship will be discussed along with the various motivating factors for the attackers.
