Imagine the number of lives that would be saved every year in this country if there was this type of program
Blackwidowp61---are you saying the average person might be able to do something USEFUL???

Haven't we been indoctrinated that to put a bandage on a wound would take years of medical, legal and psychological training in order to TRULY help the person? Don't we need to leave these things to the PROFESSIONALS?

Here's an old article (from England) about 1st responders being forbidden to wade into a 3 foot deep lake to rescue someone because they didn't have the training to do it.

Yeah I'm being sarcastic, but the link above is real.

I totally support the idea of first aid training in high school.
