App alerts you when someone in your neighborhood needs CPR. People make a difference not the government when people need help

You too can be a hero and save a life. The app PulsePoint will notify you when someone near year need’s CPR.

I’ve written about the need and benefits for people to respond to medical and first aid emergencies. See You don’t need an engine to get to the hospital, and you may live if you don’t rely on one. Getting help may be better than getting there. Now there is an App to do that. PulsePoint is an app that does that; it notifies you if someone needs CPR that is close to you.

After downloading the app to your phone you pick the fire district where you live. The biggest issue is the few numbers of fire districts that have signed on; only one in Colorado. Once you have signed on, you will be notified if you are within a close area where someone needs CPR in any of the districts that have signed up.

Even if you don’t live anywhere near a fire district that is signed up, if you travel, you should still download the app.  I’ll be in three of the fire districts that are available in the next couple of months.

Read the article In one Colorado community, a smartphone app might save a life. Then contact your fire-protection district and community leaders and encourage them to become part of the program.

There are thousands of you out there who have the training, have the experience and have the desire to help. Get the app, PulsePoint, and get involved. You too can save a life.

Wilderness First Aid

Legally what is important about First Aid when you are away from EMS, what is not…………and what is just sleight of hand

Audience:                   Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education

Location:                    Keystone, Colorado

Date:                         2010

Presentation:                       Wilderness First Aid            http://rec-law.us/17L6pQB

clip_image002

This presentation looked at myths and realities of first aid and the special issues of wilderness first aid. It also examined the various state Good Samaritan statutes and why some first aid “designations” might now qualify under the act.

For additional articles on the subject see:

First Aid has its Limits. By law!                                                                              http://rec-law.us/xS1IEk

Letter to the Editor: Wilderness and Environmental Medicine                        http://rec-law.us/AjxzNj

Not a final decision, but I believe an indication of where the law of AED’s is heading however the basis for the decision is nuts!                                                                                          http://rec-law.us/yKC5te

Seriously, you have to send a memo about this, the issue is not what they are doing, it is who you are allowing to instruct.                                                                                                 http://rec-law.us/Ap1bRu

Stopping a rescue when someone is willing to perform may create liabilityhttp://rec-law.us/xuMtOt

This is not the first time I’ve seen this: Our fear of litigation or making people mad allows someone to die.

Lawsuit filed over death of 4 year old drowning victim

The family of a four year old boy who drowned at Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort in Lake Delton Wisconsin has filed suit against the resort. The boy was swimming in the pool allegedly noticed by the lifeguards but not rescued. Allegedly the boy was not rescued because the supervisor said not to. The quote in the article “guests get angry when lifeguards enter the pool for non-emergency situations” was the reason the boy was not rescued.

Many years ago, and I can’t find a citation to it, a lawsuit was filed over the death of an employee when the supervisor prevented co-workers from performing CPR.

Are we so afraid of litigation that we can’t react to save someone or are we so “dialed” into customer service that allowing someone to die is better than making our customers mad.

Probably a stupid supervisor did not understand the situation and a young lifeguard is feeling guilt.
Two issues jump out here. The first is watch who says what when an accident occurs. The media is effective at finding the scared, the talkative or the person with the worst thing to say. As Jeff Foxworthy always says, after a tornado the media always finds the lady in the mow maw with curlers in her hair who starts off with “oh mygod it was awwwwwfffffulllll!”

Eliminate those people two ways. Train your staff on what do in an emergency and what to do after one. Second appoint one person to be the voice of the organization and make sure everyone knows that one person is the voice.

Second. Don’t’ hire stupid people.
