Indian Red Cross Society, Gujarat

Dedicated to humanitarian services

The Indian Red Cross is a voluntary humanitarian organization having a network of over 700 branches throughout the country, providing relief in times of disasters/emergencies. It is a leading member of the largest independent humanitarian organization in the world, the International Red Cross & Red Crescent Movement.

 

The IRCS, Gujarat branch was formally constituted in 1960 at the time of bifurcation of the former State of Bombay into Gujarat & Maharashtra States. Among other things, it has been actively providing basic life support, first aid, and disaster management training to several audiences – medical professionals, business people, fire fighters, police & aviation personnel, GSRTC drivers, etc. – and even others like homemakers or students.

The training will be provided by IRCS, Gujarat's Dr. Rudresh Scharma, a medical professional and a public health protagonist. Dr. Scharma is a National Level Master Trainer of First Aid, Elderly Healthcare, and Social & Disaster Emergency Responses. A Bachelor in Homeopathic Medicine & Surgery, and a Master in Public Health, Dr. Scharma has been a key resource person for designing and executing training workshops for government bodies, NGOs, and corporate entities.

 

He will be assisted by Master Trainer, First Aid, Shri Naresh Gohel, also from IRCS, Gujarat. Shri Gohil is also the Director of the Junior & Youth Red Cross Programme.

"we may not be able to give life, but we can definitely save one."
- the red cross society

Basic life support is a top survival skill, much as building a fire or foraging for food was for our ancestors. It could mean the difference between life and death. A Red Cross survey* showed that a staggering 59% of deaths from injuries could have been prevented had first aid been given before emergency services arrived.

 

So basic life support/first aid saves lives. Period? Not really, there’s more. It reduces recovery time, prevents medical situations from deteriorating, and reduces the pain experienced by a victim. Need more? It empowers you to act promptly, confidently, and without panic, even before professional help arrives.

 

But first aid is not merely about dabbing some antiseptic on a wound or taking an injured to a hospital. It requires an understanding of the emergency at hand and practical training to handle it. This is especially true for potentially fatal illnesses and injuries, such as those that require CPR, control of bleeding, and managing shocks & fractures. The good thing, however, is that anyone, even adolescents, can learn it, and in their own backyard. (Well, not literally, but The Hive offers its backyard for all interested.)

 

Take this opportunity to learn Basic First Aid Techniques from an organization that has been devoutly dedicated to it for decades – the Red Cross. Its member, the Indian Red Cross Society, Gujarat State Branch (www.redcrossgujarat.org), has been providing life-saving first aid interventions and practical training to special organizations, and now will be doing so for the general public at The Hive!

 

During an 8-hour workshop, IRCS (Gujarat) will offer a preliminary introduction, demonstration and hands-on practice opportunity to all participants. The discussion will be interactive in simple and easy to understand vernacular language with the objective of developing necessary life-saving skills in the participants. Who knows, you could be somebody’s hero! Because, in emergencies, 90% of the lives are saved by people like you!**

1. I have no prior knowledge of first aid or a medical background. Can I still attend this programme?

Yes, this programme does not require any prior training or educational background. The idea is to enable commoners to recognise medical emergencies and acquire basic skills that may come handy during these times.

2. Will I get a certificate for the training?

This programme is an 8-hour orientation to the full BLS course that is a 24-hour training. The objective for the short-term programme is to enable common people with a quick, one-day training. However, if you wish to get certified, please inquire for the longer-duration programme. You can continue your training, appear for the exam, and get certified.

3. How can I update my newly learnt skills?

Good question! It is important to refresh your training from time to time. We are in the process of setting up regular camps at The Hive in association with IRCS, Gujarat. Also, these programmes are continuously offered at the IRCS's State branch.

4. What safety precautions will be taken at The Hive?​

We will be working in small groups. Our instructors and staff are fully vaccinated. Masks are recommended when in close proximity. However, the participants are responsible for their own health & safety.
