EMT Safety talk.
Club President, Don Milburn arranged to an EMT couple to speak at the Prescott Area Woodturners last meeting (August).
EMT David and Tracy McGibbon gave a very informative talk on shop safety and procedures in case of an injury. Reasons to call 911 and what type of information first responders need.
It’s ALWAYS Safer to call 9-1-1 and not need them, then to wait too long and need them!!
Chest Pain: The #1 reason people DIE from Heart Attacks is: DENIAL of intial and early symptoms!!!
Early Treatments: TPA–> STENTS. The longer your wait, the more irreversible the damage.
A very informative talk with a Q&A.
For a first aid kit for your workshop the EMT team suggests that you “Google” first aid kits for your workshop.
