About First Aid Corps

Posted by cocreator on September 17, 2008
Updates / No Comments

We are a coalition of individuals, companies and volunteers who are seeking to improve the survival rates from sudden cardiac arrests. The volunteers are trained to provide first aid, especially cardiopulmonary resuscitation with automated external defibrillators, to their families and neighbours who have collapsed from unknown reasons. Death from heart attacks occur within 5 minutes. Only residents in the neighbourhood can respond within that time. 2 out of 3 cases occur at home. By forming FACTs ( First Aid Corps Teams ), they aim to increase the sudden cardiac arrest survival rate from the current 2% to at least a double digit and promote social bonding and cohesion with a common goal in the community. This is the only volunteer service where the volunteers are productive while at home.
