The Royal Bahrain Medical Services, in association with the Crown Prince Center for Medical Training and Research, are training citizens and residents in emergency lifesaving procedures in the downtown complex as part of the World Day first aid.
The two-day event, which started yesterday and ends today, aims to train citizens and residents in CPR – or cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid. Every year on the second Saturday of September, World First Aid Day is celebrated to raise awareness of how first aid can save many lives. This year, the theme for World First Aid Day is “Learning First Aid for Life”. The first objective of World First Aid Day is to take the necessary measures to save the lives of injured or sick people.
The second is to manage the condition of an injured person by administering first aid and trying to avoid infection. And the third objective is to bring the injured person to the hospital as soon as possible.
