We would like to pause and divert our attention from car insurance advice just for a brief moment. Once you are insured and have peace of mind that your financial well-being is well taken care of, you need to be safe on the roads!
We have given much attention to avoiding accidents, but seldom give the necessary attention to what you need to do in the event of an unfortunate accident. There are many sections of content on this available on the Arrive Alive website – but we need to do a bit more!
Earlier today we have added some more information on the basics of CPR to the Arrive Alive road safety website. We have often seen bits of pieces on CPR on television and in the movies – but do we really know how to perform this lifesaving technique?
We would like to focus briefly on the main criteria – the need to CHECK, CALL and CARE. On the road an emergency becomes even more life –threatening by the presence of other moving traffic. You need to check for these dangers before considering any emergency procedure, you would need to call qualified and well trained emergency response teams and you might need to know the basics of how to care for the accident victim.
This Blog is not the place to illustrate CPR, and we would like to urge all our vehicle owners and drivers to pause just for a moment and read the content on the Arrive Alive website titled “CPR and Road Safety – Know more and Save Lives!!”
You will also find a video clip on how CPR is performed. We tend to run around trying to find on the internet all the different techniques to save some money on our car insurance – but often neglect to pay attention to those techniques that can REALLY save a life. May we also pay more attention to the lifesaving importance of CPR!
