Until Help Arrives, Train-the-Trainer (UHA-TtT)

  • Hanover Town Hall; Lower Hearing Room 550 Hanover Street Hanover, MA, 02339 United States (map)

Description:

Until Help Arrives is a new initiative to better prepare citizens across New England with simple and effective skills to save lives prior to first responders arriving. The training covers a number of key areas including how citizens can effectively communicate with 9-1-1 operators, stay safe in a dangerous situation, stop life-threatening bleeding, position the injured, and provide emotional support. With these basic skills, citizens can play a part in being a part of the solution during an emergency. This is a train-the-trainer course, which will enable participants to in turn provide this training to others in their jurisdictions.
