Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness (1)

   In addition to the vital medical treatments the Health Guardian provides, it will be equally important to learn to protect yourself and the scene from further harm. Throughout the information provided, the Health Guardian is presented as part of the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) system. The care given by the Health Guardian in all but the least of situations, will be continued by other EMS professionals.

   Take time to apply what you have learned to the knowledge you already have and to your life experience. Ask: “What use will this information have in my life as I view it now?” Information takes on value only as you use it. Due to the nature of medicine there may be variations between what is stated on this site and what is practiced locally. Research and developing technology create rapid changes in patient care.

Always educate yourself and follow local protocols when caring for those in need.
