Universal Careers promotes Emergency Awareness DayIf someone you know were to get injured, would you know what to do? Universal Careers, an EMT/paramedic training organization, wants to get the word out.
Universal Careers announces its Emergency Awareness Day program to help people better prepare for the unexpected.
“No one expects an accident or emergency, so we often don't plan,” said Rick Hamilton, senior executive of development for UC. “While most people know to call 911, they don't know how to deal with things until help arrives. They also may not know easy ways to prevent an accident from happening.”
As part of the program, Universal Careers will provide basic tips and training for people in emergency situations almost anywhere.
'Emergencies can happen at pools, in the kitchen, on the road or vacation, or at home, especially when we get around the holiday seasons and we are concerned with other things,” said Hamilton.
Since its inception in 2005, Universal Careers has become a leader in training EMT/paramedics through its intensive courses. The Emergency Awareness Day program brings some of that training expertise to non-medical personnel to help save lives and prepare for emergency situations.
With EMT/paramedic graduates placed across the country, Universal Careers works to make sure that its training is up to date and useful by career Emergency Medical workers or individuals.
