The minutes between when an emergency occurs and when help arrives is when St. John Ambulance training saves lives. St. John Ambulance has over 600 Community Service Volunteers that attend events throughout Alberta and provide First Aid coverage, but they can’t always be there in everyday life. Knowing the skills taught by St. John Ambulance instructors will prepared you for emergency medical situations and you could play a crucial role in saving someone’s life.
Every 7 minutes someone in Canada dies from heart disease or stroke. St John Ambulance provides First-Aid and CPR training so that you could save a life if ever put in this awful position. However knowing how to perform these skills is one thing, but preventing the whole situation is another. Exercise is proven to improve cardiovascular health and lower the chance of heart attack and stroke. Being proactive today, could save your own life tomorrow. Sign up for the St John Ambulance Run and Walk for LIFE and get your start on a healthier future!
