Able to deploy mobile medical units and portable or semi-permanent clinics and hospitals, Medi Response provides a fully stocked, turnkey solution that includes medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, consumables and, most importantly, qualified medical professionals.
First Aid Training
Knowing what to do in a medical emergency is a life skill that is valuable no matter who you are, where you are or what you do. For this reason, Medi Response provides comprehensive training in first aid level 1,2 and 3, and is fully accredited with the South African School of First Aid Education. Our courses focus on how to react when dealing with everyday injuries to life threatening ailments. The first aid students are taught a wide variety of measures that have the potential to save lives including; high quality CPR, how to control bleeding and diabetic management, to name a few. Some of the advantages of being trained in first aid include recognising the signs and symptoms early and activating the emergency response protocols as soon as possible, and also being able to keep the patient in a stable condition until EMS backup arrives.
