Emergency Preparedness First Aid
for Disaster Zones

 

Course Description

This course will enable an individual, family or organisation to maximize their chances of survival in a disaster such as, fire, flood, tsunami, hurricane or earthquake. There is a core syllabus focusing on first aid in disasters with bolt on modules. The course is currently available for government organisations, NGO’s and schools as an example. Training packages are available for High Peak First Aid to train your key staff and leave your organisation with the necessary skills to cascade training across your organisation.  This aspect is particularly relevant if you live or work in a country that is prone to natural disaster. Please remember your duty to house keepers and siblings as they may be the only people to give first aid to you after a disaster. Natural disasters are not selective in population as a CEO or government representative your life may depend on a child. Language is not a barrier for our courses as we have proven experience in training overseas and have course material to support training. Course fees depend on numbers attending and location.
