Why do the training?

Patient outcomes are dramatically improved by actions taken in the first minutes after a trauma incident before emergency crews arrive. You can make a difference.

"We were out on a Sunday afternoon ride. Another group of riders have come around the corner. So we've hit head-on... I was unconscious for about 15 minutes. I have four little kids at home. They wouldn’t have a mum today if it wasn’t for the quick thinking of others and LifeFlight." - Tiffany Thomson, South West Resident
