"Until Help Arrives" Training

Burlington Board of Health Nurse to Offer “Until Help Arrives” Training

On January 03, 2018 from 6 pm-9 pm, the Burlington Board of Health Supervisory Nurse, Sylvia Musoke, RN, will be offering a free 3 hour training for interested members of the public entitled “Until Help Arrives”.  The “Until Help Arrives” program was recently developed by several federal agencies including the Federal Emergency Management Agency to empower bystanders to appropriately react in emergency situations.  Participants will learn how to provide first care to minimize injury or death in emergency situations including when to move someone away from ongoing danger, how to stop life threatening bleeding, ways to position the injured to allow breathing, and how to keep the injured warm and provide comfort. This training is not intended to replace First Aid and CPR training but is intended to provide non-medical bystanders the tools needed to respond in an emergency.

For more information on this training or to register, please call the Board of Health at 781-270-1955.
