    Thanks for the link. I will keep a copy in the car and one in my office as well as one at home.
    I thought it was well written, clear and simple, so easily understood by most people.

    A manual is a good supplement in this case. But those who really want to be sure they'll be able to help in an emergency, need to take a class. Local chapters of the Red Cross usually offer them for a fee. Some businesses will offer free training for employees. One of the few decent things my old security company did was offer such free classes a couple of times a month.

    Hi all, I am glad you have found the link useful. :) I would like to second what Monocrom said about best being able to help someone is to take a class. I've taken a First Aid Course with the Red Cross and it was great. Having these manuals then serves as a nice refresher to help you remember your skills. :) Glad there are good people in the world like you all who want to help others.

    Peace!

    Thanks for sharing. As was posted before, training is the way to go, whether through the local Red Cross or community college, any is better than none.

    I just went through the manual and will say that it has good information but it is extremely basic. I mean rock bottom basics. I would recommend this manual for people who have zero first aid training. Also, keep in mind that there is much more to first aid than what is contained in this information. It is a good starting point.
