Get Ready First Aide Package 2021

We all know to call 911, but what happens while waiting for emergency services can make the difference between life or death and can reduce the long-term impacts of an injury.

Time is critical

Accidents and injuries can happen anywhere, and Universities and Colleges are no exception. With rising rates of alcohol and drug use on campuses, as well as increasing numbers of students facing mental health concerns, post-secondary institutions everywhere are struggling to find solutions to protect the health and safety of their students. When a situation does occur, whether it is alcohol poisoning, drug overdose, or an athletic injury, response time is critical.

Introducing the Get Ready First Aide Platform™

Cloud Based

This cloud-based program was developed for immediate access to emergency information to provide life-saving care while waiting for emergency services to arrive. Available in your browser and our convenient mobile companion app.

Cardiac Arrest

In a cardiac arrest situation, bystanders must begin ‘Hands-Only CPR’ and use an AED within the first 5-10 minutes. Without oxygen, the brain will die. Emergency response agencies cannot get to the patient fast enough.

When willing bystanders perform CPR or use an AED, the survival rate of cardiac arrest increases from 5% to 32%.
