First Aid

First Aid

The goal of this department is to provide First Aid training to all HRT volunteers and to every individual who is keen on learning how to save a life.

The Department consists of first aid instructors and offers ancillary services to the other departments.

The activities of the First Aid Department include training of new volunteers and specialisation of all the HRT members in First Aid, by internationally recognized certifications, preparation of HRT members for community training and the First Aid coverage of various events.

One of the most important goals of the Department is providing prevention training to the community. Therefore, its members organize seminars, workshops and conferences focused in individuals and people working in associations, companies, organizations, educations, etc.

Historical review

The official operation of the Department started in 2003 by volunteers with knowledge on pre-hospital care. The main aim of the Department is ensuring the best possible training level for the organization's members and First Aid training for as many people as possible.

An important point in the history of the Department was the cooperation with the Emergency Department of AHEPA Hospital in Thessaloniki in 2004, which provided the opportunity to volunteers to be trained in dealing with trauma. This cooperation continues up to today.

Another key point in its history is the cooperation and co-training with Volunteer Organisations from the UK, Turkey, etc.
