Awareness is the first and most important step to action.
Join us in our efforts to raise awareness, bust myths and empower the common man with knowledge of Dos and Don’ts that can make a difference between life and death when it comes to emergency response and first aid.
We’ve made a series of videos aimed at informing and educating people so that each and every one of us can do our bit and do it right, during the time it takes for an ambulance/ medical help to arrive.

Gentle Reminders
India has alarming statistics when it comes to emergency response. An estimated 300,000 emergency cases, medical and non-medical, are recorded in the country every day, with 9.5% of the population being affected by an emergency annually. Of these, 80% are medical emergencies. And, as a rule, 80% of deaths in medical emergencies occur during the first hour
17 lives are lost every minute to emergencies.
The primary goal of first aid is to prevent death or serious injury from worsening. The key aims of first aid can be summarized with the acronym of "The three P's"
Preserve life: Prevent further harm: Promote recovery.
The golden hour is the first ‘60 minutes’ following any injury or trauma. Prompt medical attention during this period can save one’s life. This period is very critical as the chances of survival depend on this window period. The golden hour is not just for traumatic situations such as accidents or injuries. The first hour is also critical in situations such as a heart attack or stroke, wherein immediate medical attention has a profound impact on a person’s survival
Remember the Life-Saving Golden Hour!
