The content within the First Aid/CPR/AED program reflects the most current scientific recommendations, and includes the knowledge and skills necessary for participants to safely identify and give appropriate care, regardless of the type of the emergency. This program stresses the basic steps to follow in any emergency, beginning with the most important step - the decision to act - and helps participants confront their fears of getting involved and giving care. The American Red Cross program explains the emergency medical services (EMS) system, emphasizes the need for rapid medical assistance in an emergency and provides instruction on appropriate care for a variety of injuries and sudden illnesses that first responders may encounter in their workplaces, communities and homes.
