Other things to consider:
What about training? Are you prepared to perform CPR? Do you know how to apply a splint or know the proper way to treat a snake bite? During the storm EMS may not be allowed to respond to medical emergencies. After the storm, there are many people that require emergency medical services and the emergency rooms are packed.
If you are have not had a recent CPR First Aid class you should consider taking one of our CPR AED and First Aid classes.
Can you help me prepare for natural disasters like hurricanes and tornadoes?
Yes. Much of the first aid portion of our class relates to medical emergencies that can happen while preparing for a hurricane, tornado, earthquake or other disaster. Our classes are both for planning before the actual event (hurricane or tornado) as well as after the hurricanes or tornadoes are done, during clean up.

FLORIDA AED DEFIBRILLATOR SALES
What is an AED - do I need one?
An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient. The AED is able to treat the patient by application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. AEDs are designed to be simple so that anyone can use one. Proper use of an AEDs is taught in our CPR first aid classes. We also sell and service AEDs, call us if you would like to learn more about owning an AED.
