What I learnt During The First Aid Course

Durin the Standard First Aid course, our instructor has imparted these 2 important knowledge which I think can be applied when there's emergency. Therefore, I decided to write it in my blog to remind myself.

What is the purpose of having numbers on all lamposts islandwide?

It is meant for paramedics' easy identification to arrive swiftly on where the accident occured. Simply inform them the name of district followed by the numbers.

This may not be seen in S'pore. But according to my instructor, using Kotex as an aid in controlling bleeding is quite a common site in the West. Kotex is used as it's not only clean and most importantly able to prevent blood contact either with the rescuer or victim.
