Objectives

SCPC Programme "First Aid – First Chance" aims at promoting first aid measures in road accidents and their right application ways.

Moreover, another purpose of this programme is to make population aware of the utility to offer first aid, starting from the idea that ‘Responsibility and minimum first aid knowledge can save a life’.

Actions will involve elaboration and distribution of leaflets and brochures, as well as development of instruction videos and organisation of practical training courses.

The programme will develop in collaboration with the Emergency Situations Inspectorates (SMURD/SIAMUD units), County Ambulance Services and Emergency Receiving Units from partner hospitals.
