BEING A HEALER

REMEMBER THE STORY ABOUT THE SHOALIN MONK WHO KICKED THE BANDITS BUTTS, THEN BOUND THEIR WOUNDS?
WELL, WHETHER THE VICTIM IS A GOOD GUY OR A BAD BUY YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED TO SAVE A LIFE.

SO WHERE DO YOU START?
My training started at age 11 in the Boy Scouts. Next was basic combat first aid in Army basic training, which added a new dimension to the types of injuries covered. Later, I became a First Responder when I went through the academy.

If you have no training at all, you can start by picking up some Red Cross courses. These are great for basic band aid stuff, but usually don’t cover serious injuries. You could do almost as well by purchasing a copy of the Boy Scout Handbook and the First Aid merit badge book. So, if you really want to be able to help people (save lives, etc) get some real training. No money? How about on-line training at YouTube? Not the best, but better than no training at all.

Here’s a good place to start for more advanced training: http://armymedical.tpub.com/MD0554/index.htm
This is a FREE on-line course that covers a lot of serious trauma situations.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BECOME USEFUL TO SOCIETY HOW ABOUT TAKING EMT CLASSES? OR http://medicalcorps.org/

WORK TO BE BETTER, WORK TO BE PREPARED TO HELP OTHERS. WORK TO SAVE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT. WORK TO HELP THOSE THAT GOD ENTRUSTS TO YOUR CARE.

A GOOD SCOUT IS PREPARED

INVEST IN SOME TOOLS TO HELP OTHERS HERE’S A COUPLE OF PLACES TO LOOK:

http://www.calvetsupply.com/ Often med supplies from a vet are a lot less expensive and are EXACTLY the same quality as for humans. Usually the quality standards are set by federal law.

http://www.amazon.com I’ve picked up a lot of supplies here.

SO GET YOUR IFAK AND BOK READY AND KEEP THEM WITH YOU. ALWAYS. THEN START ADDING TO THEM THE TOOLS TO HELP OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HELP YOURSELF.
