When something bad happens there are a number of fight or flight tendencies that we tend to journey through in a single second, but one of the more common reactions is for the mind to go a bit blank and for us (not US us, obviously ;)) to wind up frozen to the spot. Once again, it may feel like you were rooted for all eternity, chances are… it just took a couple moments for you to gather yourself, process the situation and then take some action. That being said, the action one does take, needs to be appropriate.
The most important and necessary thing you can do to help is to actually ask for help. Like, on a phone, from a professional. Here, we’ll give you a hand: 086 162 7732 (save that real quick, because it may help you or someone you know, or a random stranger you happen to pass by, later).
Next up, in case the situation that arises is medical, we would like to suggest you know your way around some life saving techniques. Movies like to show us how people spring into action, they all suddenly know CPR or how to remove a blockage, (via a random pen in the trachea???? erm… no thanks), if someone’s dramatically chocking in a middle of a restaurant. The reality is, few people actually know how to do these things correctly, and sometimes that can result in causing a bit more harm then good, even though they’re just trying to help.
Here at Marshall we are proud to power Crisis Medical an Advanced Life Support, pre-hospital emergency, medical services provider, who also, just so happen to be certified for training.
