Red Cross First Aid Services Team

By completing my FAST responder training in January, I became a member of the Red Cross First Aid Services Team. As a part of the team, I get to go to events around Columbus and help the event goers with first aid or any emergencies they have had. This is a very unique opportunity, because most volunteering opportunities in the health care field don’t provide patient contact. However, through FAST, I can interact with and help patients. I have been to about 4 events so far, and have had 3 patients I have got to work with. I am hoping to go to a lot more bigger events, so I can learn even more and become a better first responder!
