CODE RED Emergency Response
Emergency Response Team Building can be really FUN for groups, because it shows how results matter, increases confidence and can help save lives in real life.
Team ready? You better be. Emergencies can’t wait. A man lies unconscious washed up on the beach. A woman on a plane suddenly stops breathing. A family member starts choking at dinner. What if a colleague were to suddenly clutch their chest and collapse, would you know exactly what to do?
No one ever expects these things to happen. There’s no warning, no time to train, no time to lose. Venture Up’s Code Red is an Emergency Response Team Building program that will ensure you will be ready before tragedy strikes. Our goal is to build trust, collaboration and confidence to get teams acting as a unit, to help clarify leadership roles to control the inevitable panic.
EMERGENCY RESPONSE FACTS:
1.) If you perform CPR within two minutes of cardiac arrest, you can make the difference between life and death – BEFORE paramedics arrive. Survival rates increase by 50%
2.) An estimated 359,000 American experience cardiac arrest outside of hospitals each year. Without CPR approximately only 4% survive.
3.) CPR maintains blood circulation to critical organs — including the liver, brain, kidneys and heart — during cardiac arrest when the heart has stopped and the patient is not breathing.
4.) Any CPR is better than no CPR. It doesn’t have to be perfect and will not make a patient worse.
5.) 88% of cardiac arrest occurs at home, so the life you save with CPR is likely a child, spouse, parent or friend — someone you love.
6.) At least 70% of all Americans feel untrained, incapable or helpless to act during a cardiac emergency.
7.) If a by stander does not perform CPR, survival decreases 7% for every 1 minute of delay.
8.) 45% of heart attacks occur amongst people under 65 years of age.
Venture Up’s Code Red program is a fun interactive training event. Led by trained medical responders, participants learn how to handle life-threatening scenarios with life saving techniques. Our 1st priority is CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) coupled with AED (automatic external defibrillator) training. Other techniques such as Heimlich Maneuver and BLS are taught to deal with the 6 most common emergency situations; cardiac arrest, choking, electric shock, seizures, anaphylaxis and glycerin reactions.
Our instructor’s standard is simple: by the time team members are finished, they will trust each other to treat them or their loved ones to avoid a tragedy. The team returns to work with a meaningful bond, knowing they can teach one another to save a life in the event of an emergency in the office.
