Teaches Fire Safety and evacuation
In Ukraine, ambulance response time is ten minutes for a city and 20–30 minutes for rural areas. Meanwhile, because of critical bleeding that happens at an injury, death occurs in five or seven minutes as fast as from a sudden cardiac arrest. The chance for survival of the injured can be only if the accident eyewitnesses give first aid – undertake simple and timely actions aimed at saving life and health of the injured person until professional medical workers arrive. The companies provide First Aid training to take care and responsibility of their employees and customers, protect them, and comply with international practices.

Over four hundred thousand Europeans die of sudden cardiac arrest every year. When the heart stops, the brain is able to live only 5–7 minutes. Every minute during which oxygen is not supplied to the brain reduces the likelihood of the victim returning to normal life. 94% of the patients die before the ambulance arrives.
In such cases, the heart can be restarted with the automated external defibrillator (AED), which is a portable electronic device designed for use by people without medical education. It automatically diagnoses potentially life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and eliminates them by applying an electric discharge. Defibrillation within the first three minutes increases chances for surviving to 70-80%.
The defibrillators should be available in all public places: in offices, business and shopping centers, concert venues and so on.
To save one’s life, two factors must happen together: somebody’s first aid skills and appropriate equipment to give the first aid.
