Responding to Emergencies
Taking a Responding to Emergencies Class
The Responding to Emergencies (RTE) program is Heart Life CPR's semester-long lay responder program designed to help participants recognize and respond to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies. The courses in this program teach the knowledge and skills needed to give immediate care to an injured or ill person and to decide whether advanced medical care is needed.
This program is designed primarily for use in secondary schools, colleges, universities and other settings that require a curriculum of greater length than Heart Life CPR's traditional First Aid/CPR/AED program. With the additional course length, RTE provides more in-depth lecture and discussion content as well as extended time for skill activities such as giving CPR and using an AED.
