“Be Emergency Ready-An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Max Hospital, Saket and The Times of India conducted a workshop on being ‘emergency- ready’ at all times. The workshop was held for students of classes 8 and 9 of our School on 31 January 2019. It aimed at creating awareness among the target audience of students, teachers and parents about emergency responses and prevention methods.

The session commenced with a series of interactive engagements like an Emergency Quiz, descriptions of different types of emergencies and how even the smallest injury is an emergency.

Next, the emergency personnel of Max Hospital interacted with the children on saving a person’s life in a situation of cardiac arrest. A rubber mannequin was used to demonstrate the CPR ( Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation) method. The students were also shown the protocol to be followed in the case of a person choking or collapsing.

The session was an interactive one where students were co opted to demonstrate CPR to reinforce the right protocol. They were given first-aid booklets containing information on how to handle minor and major medical emergencies.

It was an informative and empowering experience as students imbibed lessons on being emergency ready at all times.
