Importance Of First Aid For Drivers



India witnesses around 5 lakh accidents every year, and roughly 150000 people lose their lives that come down to 400 accident-related fatalities per day. Half of those people lose their lives on the way to the hospitals due to the lack of immediate first aid response.

We at VMEDO believe that just the simple knowledge of first aid can save thousands of people affected by emergencies, and first aid training for drivers becomes a very important deal because lack of road safety awareness is the major cause of medical emergencies.
