Training In Emergency

TRAINING IN EMERGENCY:

Over 20 years of preparing minds and hands for emergency response at Healthcare, First responder and Bystander levels.

BACKGROUND:
The first organized emergency/resuscitation training program In Nigeria was carried out by Emergency Response Services (then Industrial Medical Services) in collaboration with Society of Anesthetists of West Africa (SAWA) in Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) in 1992.

It was attended by doctors and nurses from all over the country (NIGERIA).
Before then, ERS had been giving basic first aid to the industrial sector as part of emergency clinical services.

In 1995, ERS signed agreement with Emergency Medical Planning of Oregon (now Medic First Aid International) and became their first training center in Africa. This gave rise to an organized CPR and emergency care training across the country especially in the oil industries and corporate bodies. First responders and bystanders were the main training participants at this period.

In 2003, Emergency Response went into training of health care providers in emergency care and resuscitation and became the second American heart Association  (AHA) training center in Africa.

In 2010, Emergency Response in collaboration with Nigeria Orthopedic Association opened the Nigerian Chapter of advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) of American College of Surgeons (ACS). Today, Emergency Response Services has programs in Pre-hospital Trauma Life support (PHTLS) and international Trauma Life Support (ITLS) as well as Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training programs.
