Emergency Preparedness Seminars Offered By West Chester Hospital on June 24 & 27

From minor cuts and sprains, to choking, stopped breathing and heart attacks, it is critically important to be prepared to deal with health emergencies in the home. To help educate the community about common emergent health situations, the physicians and staff at West Chester Hospital are providing education about how to quickly and calmly respond to a variety of minor and serious health emergencies.

West Chester Hospital is hosting two free educational seminars this month, featuring the region’s leading emergency medicine and trauma injury physicians, in collaboration with the West Chester Township Fire Department’s Emergency Medical Services team.

During the seminars, numerous topics will be addressed, including: What injuries or health emergencies commonly occur within the home and how they should be treated? At what point should one call 9-1-1 to secure emergency medical services? What tips can help families be prepared to respond to minor injuries and emergencies in the home? How should you respond to life- threatening injuries that take place in the home? How do I perform CPR or the Heimlich maneuver? Why is family communication and planning important?
