I'm just curious, is there anyone out there other than me who can't figure out why they don't teach basic first aid in school? I mean, why would we not try and teach every kid possible the basics and continue the training ALL thru school. I saw a fella go into seizures the other day and 10 people were standing around and not one person knew what to do. I ran over to help and just as I got there another guy grabbed him so he could not bang his head and made sure he did not swallow his tongue while he told another guy to call 911. I'm sure all of those people would have let that guy die had that other guy showed up(not counting myself) not that they were bad people, just all of them were dumbfounded.
I've been thru first aid since I was out of highschool every job I've had demanded it but why aren't we trained as a society from grade 1 all the way up, imagine how many people would be saved because the people around them are able to spot heart attacks, know heatstroke, understand burns or how to stop bleeding or all the other small things you learn in basic first aid.
