LETTER: Teach industrial first aid in high school

We are all trying to be positive, but as you can see the world appears to be in a downhill spin with all the recent disasters from climate change.

Many people are getting inured and need medical attention, already hospitals are at capacity, doctors and nurses and first responders are all overworked. So what can we do to help them out? I strongly believe that in high schools and junior high schools, industrial first aid should be mandatory and start immediately.

Students, step up to the plate and pitch in, for it’s your future. Let’s be prepared in case things get out of hand.

Love, compassion and kindness are the anchors of life.
