On August 2, CPR (CPR) training, one of the first aid training, was conducted for medical firefighters and club F.I.S.T. members specializing in university students. CPR training lasted from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for a total of 4 hours. The number of people participating in the program is a medical fire brigade specializing in college students, who thoroughly followed the guidelines for preventing COVID-19 such as measuring body temperature, hand sanitation, and ventilation in classrooms before and after CPR training.
The F.I.S.T., a college student volunteer fire brigade consisting of fire safety students, is a club aimed at safety education and public relations activities to emphasize the need for fire prevention measures. It mainly inspects firefighting facilities in classrooms and labs at colleges and advises the need to expand fire prevention activities on campus, and provides caution and recommendations on how to use firefighting facilities such as evacuation routes, fire extinguishers, and indoor fire hydrants.
The purpose of this CPR training is to train firefighters who have the basic skills of professional medical firefighters and can cope wisely in unexpected situations. CPR, meaning CPR, is a cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and if it is implemented efficiently in emergency situations, it is expected that medical firefighters will be able to develop their ability to cope calmly even in unexpected situations.
CPR training taught the need for CPR in life, as well as the order in which CPR is implemented depending on the situation and target (adult, pediatric and infant). He also had time to practice post-training on the correct use of AEDs. All education was conducted to develop quick judgment and responsiveness in case of an unexpected situation. The training consisted of one hour of theoretical education and three hours of practice.
After CPR training, F.I.S.T. members learned how to do CPR, which changes depending on the situation, and were trained to respond flexibly in real-life situations through various simulations so that they could have basic skills as fire safety engineers.
If a person who witnessed a heart attack performs CPR immediately, he or she is more than three times more likely to save the life of a heart attack patient. Furthermore, the ‘number of acute myocardial infarction’ in the National Medical Center’s emergency medical status statistics requires more CPR training because the number of acute myocardial infarction patients is increasing every year. Under these circumstances, CPR education will be a meaningful education that can save a person’s life, not just an activity to obtain a certificate.
