bloodSaturday September 13th is being observed as World First Aid Day, abbreviated WFAD. With its global theme, “First aid heroes in daily emergencies and disasters”, the Belize Red Cross awareness campaign message is “Be a Hero, Save Lives”. In lieu of this, Red Cross Belize will be training interested parties in first aid. A release from the organization says that ‘First aid is the first step in the chain of survival during an emergency.

 

Contrastingly, in many low- and middle-income countries, the percentage of people trained is extremely low. Preparing people with these skills also builds more resilient communities, better preparing neighbors and friends to act when the next disaster strikes,’ end quote.


Officials at the Belize Red Cross say they will be engaging in training individuals across the nation in the coming weeks.
