I'll be participating in a free online debate, for anyone interested in: #lifeguarding #FirstAid, #firstresponder #Lifeguard #CPR #C-spine #trauma #BLS
The International Life Saving Federation is having a medical talk (actually, a debate amongst several international doctors, researchers, and paramedics) on **C-collar use** and **Hands-only CPR**. Should be fun.
It's aimed at anyone involved in life saving, from lifeguards to aquatic agency medical directors. Registration is free.
There will be two other webinars in weeks to come on other Rescue Commission topics.

EXCLUSIVE: First Hand Accounts Allege Officer #BrianSicknick Was Denied Critical Treatment By Police

One witness helped another offered life saving care

Jan. 13, 2022

Fight the censorship & algorithms: like, comment, retweet, share, follow!
Two shocking eye-witness accounts corroborate something worse than we could have ever imagined. The @CapitolPolice appear to not only be responsible for the #death of multiple #protesters (which they lied about) but also for the #death of a fellow officer, #BrianSicknick.

We stand in #Solidarity with our Workers in the #Unions & this is the only way to have a say in our Working Environment by #WorkingTogether & doing a #Strike!
People like us, who've been arguing against the broken Gears & For-profit exploitation of #Capitalism, comes in to help.
We're in a #SocietalCollapse as the Full Stop & Endgame of #Capitalism's Growth has begun! We need Calls & Movements for a "Great Transition" from this broken #Dystopia where we have a #ClimateCrisis, #HousingCrisis, #Pandemic, #EvictionCrisis, #HealthcareCrisis,...
#BiodiversityCrisis, etc.
As the system focuses on #Economic Growth, #Corporate Interest & Businesses First while exploiting the #Labor who are treated like hell & not paid a #LivingWage nor anything while everything to basically live is practically an Expense under #Capitalism.

Buckin' #TouThao doesn't need any damned water if #GeorgeFloyd didn't get any air! We're having #DerrickChauvin's trial now, but you're not forgotten #Thao, you should've stopped the other 3 from #murdering #GeorgeFloyd, but you helped them! #ConvictThao!
At 09:30 #TouThao says he was taught #CPR at the police academy, recertified every two yrs. Why didn't he pull that skill out of his ass during #TheMurderOfGeorgeFloyd? The first thing they teach you is to take a pulse, did he take #GeorgeFloyd's pulse?
This meeting takes place in August 2020, it's warm in Minnesota in August, and #TouThao is there voluntarily, he is not under arrest, so all five of these men are #CovidIdiots because they aren't having this meeting outside and with masks on.

Dear @rpfwr1 while this man might have broken rules, here are few Qs:
Are there ambulances outside every railway stn?
How long would it have taken for a stretcher to fetch this woman in labour?
How many personnel have been trained to handle critical situations on rly platforms?
Let me tell you how ill equipped authorities are to handle such situations on rly platforms:
A man once fell under a train. Nobody knew what to do. Because I had undergone #FirstAid training, I checked for his vital stats, under the train.
It was 15mins before authorities came.
Kept telling people to call the ambulance that's supposed to be stationed outside every rly stn. Nobody knew where/how to call someone.
A cop came in, probably of @rpfwr1 but he wouldn't lend me a hand. He only stopped people from crowding around me & the unconscious bleeding man

Wasted or unused medicine is a growing problem that you can help tackle.

❌🚾NEVER flush medicines down the toilet or throw into the bin
✅👩⚕️ALWAYS return it to a pharmacy or chemist for safe disposal

Dr Matthew Davies explains:
Also, keep a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home for #selfcare of minor ailments common during the autumn and winter period. 🌧️🍂❄️ 🤧🤒
