I believe that everyone should know CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and basic first aid. Personally I have gone way beyond that and taken the time to become a certified Wilderness First Responder (WFR). You can learn CPR in only a few hours of time and CPR and basic first aid can be learned together in around 5 hours. In Georgetown we are fortunate to have local EMT Brian Coolidge’s company Summit First Aid regularly offering classes and the Georgetown fire department has also started offering training.
CPR and First Aid Options - this short document describes some of the options for CPR and first aid training. This can help you decide what you want to learn and what kind of commitment you may need to make to learn it.
Personal First Aid Kits - a guide to building first aid kits.
Over The Counter Medication Pack - a handy pack of over the counter medications you can carry in your briefcase, car or toiletries kit.
SOAP Note 9 - Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan note 9.0. A form for creating SOAP notes after rendering first aid. A SOAP note provides essential documentation of first aid care and is your best line of defense against having your care second guessed later. I developed this while I was going through Wilderness First Responder training.
