Ziqitza HealthCare Ltd. is always on alert to provide you the best of emergency care during natural disasters. As an individual, we’d also advise you to take precautions and stay prepared with a Disaster Management Kit for the safety of you and your family
What is a Disaster Management Kit?
A disaster management kit includes supplies your family might need to survive in the event of a disaster. It should be easy to carry and can be used at home or taken with you in case you must evacuate during an emergency.
Build Your Own Disaster Management Kit
To assemble your kit, store items in airtight plastic bags and put your entire disaster supplies kit in one or two easy-to-carry containers such as plastic bins or a duffel bag.
Along with the disaster management kit, first aid training also plays a significant role in helping you overcome injuries caused during natural disasters.
There are various agencies and online courses that offer in-depth theoretical and practical orientation for individuals, regarding the ‘what’, ‘how’, ‘when’, ‘why’, and ‘which’ of emergencies. They are generally listed under the term ‘Health & Safety’ courses or ‘Occupational Health & Safety’ modules that focus on competence in the practical application of the same. Thus, it not only is often critical to individuals know how to help themselves and others during an unforeseen emergency, but also keeps the panic in control, since employees today are made aware of the steps that need to be taken in order to minimise the harm or damage caused. It helps ingrain a responsible health and safety practice as well as ensures risk assessments to promote a healthy and safe working culture.
ZHL offers the best in emergency medical care, and also believes in empowering ordinary citizens to respond appropriately to emergency situations. Ziqitza Health Care offers a range of First Responder Programs (FRP) to help train ordinary citizens to respond to medical emergencies effectively with First Aid and Basic Life Support techniques.
A first responder is the one who identifies an emergency and takes the necessary and correct steps to stabilise the situation within the Golden Hour itself. A First Responder has to know simple life-saving techniques that any common mann can perform with minimal equipment at hand, in order to provide aid in emergencies, till more advanced care is made available to the patient in need. On recognising an emergency, the first responder activates the ERS. Post this, they provide immediate assistance to a patient with a sudden illness, or injury before being taken to a health unit for further management. Every employee must know the basics of first aid in the event of an emergency at the workplace. To know more about how to save a life, book an FRP now.
An injury or emergency situation not tended to immediately can have drastic consequences. The administration of first aid depends on the gravity of the situation. It may be as minor as applying ointment or sealing a wound with a bandage, or as major as performing CPR to save a life. In serious cases, First Aid should only be administered by those who have received training and are qualified to do so.
On an average, any individual has a time frame of 3-4 minutes before effectively administering first aid, especially in major cases. Therefore it is important to act swiftly and be smart. The main goal is to keep the patient alive till professional help arrives.
