What A First Aid Sign Can Tell You

Everyone needs help at one point or another – and that’s why you need to know to look for a first aid sign. Even if you’re not the one who is injured, being able to easily identify medical help will allow you to take control of a medical emergency and help the victim get the assistance they need. Here is what a first aid sign can tell you.

Where the Local Hospital Is

By looking along the roads, you might be able to find a first aid sign or symbol (the even armed cross or plus sign) along with directions. This will show you the way to a local medical facility, while also helping you find the best path and direction. When you’re in an unfamiliar area, this is a welcome sign as time is of the greatest importance during an emergency.

You might also be directed to a local health clinic or doctor’s office which may not be able to help in a bigger emergency, but they can certainly assist you until you find the appropriate emergency room.

Local urgent care centers tend to have better medical equipment, so if you’re not sure if you need an ER and you find one of these facilities first, try going in there before a clinic or a regular doctor’s office.

Where the First Aid Tent Is

If you’re running a race or out at a public event, finding the first aid sign will be useful if you become injured or you feel ill. These tents often have registered nurses and other medical volunteers that will help in minor injuries and allow you to rest for a while if you are overheated. While these tents aren’t usually staffed by doctors, the professionals who are on hand can help in many situations and can call for an ambulance if your injuries or concerns are beyond their scope of skills.

Where the First Aid Kit Is

In your workplace or office space, you can look for the first aid sign when you need to get a bandage or another piece of first aid equipment. These signs are generally posted on the outside of the first aid kit or at other first-aid facilities in your company – eye wash stations, for example. These signs should be easy to see and identify so that no time is wasted during an emergency.

When you find a first aid sign, you can feel better knowing that help is close at hand. In today’s world of uncertainty, knowing where to turn is the best first step to take.
