TCIF COMMEMORATES WORLD FIRST AID DAY 2020
The knowledge of first aid by first responders and bystanders in the event of emergencies contributes significantly to improved outcomes for casualties.
First Aid has thus become an essential and integral part of effective post-crash response strategy in road safety management.
Driven by her mission to improve the state of trauma care and emergency response in her member nations; the Trauma Care International Foundation (TCIF) has consistently focused on expanding the available pool of skilled first responders through provision of capacity building sessions focused on first aid and safety education to personnel of relevant government emergency response agencies including the FRSC, VIO, NPF, Nigerian Army, and individuals from all walks of life; both literate and semi-literate.
In line with the theme of the 2020 World First Aid Day which is FIRST AID SAVES LIVES; TCIF partnered with the Federal Road Safety Commission Lagos State Sector Command to recruit, train and kit a team of first responders selected from relevant stakeholders groups and communities along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway; which is very significant due to its notably high record of road traffic accidents.
