Riassunto: Ask any fire/rescue or EMS person and they will tell you: the key to emergency response is preparedness. First comes prevention; knowing how to stop emergencies before they happen. Yet if sudden injury or illness occurs, knowing what to do can make the difference between a mild emergency and a serious one, or even between life and death. When you don?t know, panic usually results; now you?re part of the problem. But don?t fret; the information you need to be the first step in the solution ? basic first aid and safety skills ? is relatively simple and easy to learn. Easy to learn, yes, but if things go wrong, your learning suddenly makes all the difference.
First Aid and Safety For Dummies gives you the tools you need to save a life.

Emphasizing practicality and ready-to-use knowledge, this book also covers:
Preparedness is peace of mind. With the knowledge you?ll gain from First Aid and Safety For Dummies, you can rest assured that you?ve taken the most effective steps against accidents and mishaps.
