Summary: In large cities, the average response time for emergency services is more than seven minutes – which can be the difference between life and death. With the rapid growth of Uber fleets in major cities, Uber cars can arrive at a person’s location in about three minutes. This program would provide Uber drivers with certified first aid training and equip them with lifesaving first aid kits. When 911 receives a medical emergency, the closest Uber car is notified. Once at the scene, the driver can provide first aid until the ambulance arrives.
An exceptional video in the first aid training field. With uber arriving in Australia and Canberra it would be a great idea to incorporate this training here also and the introduction of AED’s into vehicles in the Canberra region.
Canberra First Aid courses are provided at an already low rate but we would like to hear from you if you are driving for uber and interested in providing this service.
