In our country and in the world from the press and televisions almost every day; We hear about disability, death, or the loss of work force they cause. Some of the reasons for these are; People who intervene in accidents do not know about first aid practices, and failing to perform a first aid application in time or with an appropriate technique. Conscious and timely first aid practices delay the recovery of patients and cause them to become disabled or die.
First aid training; It has a life-saving importance in dangerous situations such as illness, accident, earthquake, fire, as well as minimizing life-threatening risks.
Throughout her/his life and at any time, people may encounter situations that require first aid.
In accidents and sudden illnesses, effective and knowledgeable first aid can ensure that the patient or injured can be taken to the hospital alive and the life of the patient or injured can be saved.

There is a high chance of preventing deaths by providing first aid at the accident site in the shortest time, effectively and consciously.
