Every minute prior to hospitalization reduces survivability by 5%. Usually the first people on the site of an accident are not first aid workers or doctors but the individuals who are close to the victim.

Understanding that in a critical situation a citizen can receive or give urgent and quality emergency aid increases a person’s feeling of security and safety.
