The reality is that sometimes Professional First Responders can't get there soon enough.
First Care Providers are the first ones to brave danger and selflessly provide medical care to those injured.
Empowered and trained community members can serve a critical role as First Care Providers (FCP) during the initial moments after complex and dynamic disasters.
These FCPs often have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time sensitive, life saving interventions; the FCP is the first link in the trauma chain of survival.
Before Help Arrives provides FREE Trauma Response Training via our Nation wide network of Authorised Trainers and Instructors.
The First Care Provider Course has been developed in the United States as part of the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Initiative, and is delivered under licence from the First Care Provider Foundation through Tactical Casualty Care Australia and Before Help Arrives.
Our Aim is to prepare and provide everyday Australians, with the skills and confidence to be Citizen Hero's.
Inspired by the American First Care Provider Foundation it is our Vision to provide a Community Safety initiative that our Friends across the Pacific can be proud of. And ultimately build our own grassroots Army of Citizen Hero's, ready willing and able to stand up and step in whenever or wherever the need arises.
To raising Public awareness of the need for civilian response to major acts of violence, disasters and Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
Together WE can create an integrated network of individuals and communities empowered to ensure not another life is lost from a preventable cause of death as a result of trauma or SCA.
To give every Australian the skills and confidence to be a Citizen Hero.
