BLE’s Layperson First Aid/CPR/AED program reflects the most current consensus on scientific recommendations and follows the curriculum provided by the Health & Safety Institute (HSI) and American Red Cross (ARC).  The program content includes the knowledge and skills necessary for participants to safely identify and give appropriate care regardless of the type of emergency.  The program stresses the basic steps to follow in any emergency, beginning with the most important step, the decision to act, and helps participants confront their fears of getting involved and giving care. It explains the emergency medical services (EMS) system, emphasizes the need for rapid medical assistance in an emergency, and provides instruction on appropriate care for a variety of injuries and sudden illnesses that lay responders may encounter in their workplaces, schools, communities, and homes specific to the Eastern Sierra.
