EMER Project was born after an accident suffered by a member of the Project which resulted in a critical emergency situation. However, on that occasion, the people surrounding the victim failed to react.
After the serious injury to the member of our team, we began a thorough investigation to identify some of the problems identified above. It raised serious questions as to methods of dealing with emergencies. We were worried to learn that from our accident data that the majority of injuries affect children, teenagers and older people. During the investigation it was found that the emergency training is provided mainly to professional employees , but ...
Who trains the most vulnerable and those most likely to have an accident?
At this point we created with the support of the full range of professionals in emergencies scientific Decalogue and script development project. Always with the purpose of providing the basis for security and self-sufficiency to act in a critical situation.
A different training
You have to consider that when this group are being taught, they are in an age when the ability to retain concepts decreases, why should education follow the traditional pattern or have a format that would produce an alert pessimistic toward life itself?
It should be different, dynamic and fun, to grab the attention, yet interactive and tailored to their language, to facilitate the assimilation of the advice given. So that would be incorporated into their ways and be remembered as a habit of behavior.
Then, we considered it necessary to conduct a simulation of the project activities that allow extracting sufficient effectiveness and impact data as well as acceptance of the methodology and tools developed for the occasion.
The high attendance and acceptance in March 2010 encouraged us to make the project a reality and we have developed in school, Hospitals, Medical Meetings, Official Associations, Centres of social exclusion, Libraries, etc... where we trained over 3000 people.
