ACT First Aid focuses on the top three skills to save a life in the crucial minutes before emergency responders arrive:
- Antidote for suspected opiate overdoses (Narcan administration)
- CPR and AED training for cardiac arrest
- Tourniquet for severe bleeding control (wound packing and tourniquet use)
South County Fire created and launched ACT First Aid in 2018 to give bystanders the skills and confidence to act in an emergency and make training more accessible. Since then, thousands of individuals and more than 100 community groups, schools, government agencies and other organizations have been trained in ACT First Aid by South County Fire.
South County Fire provides fire and emergency medical services for 270,000 residents of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and unincorporated south Snohomish County.
