After the success of First Aid, there was a scramble to follow up with another hit. First Aid was already the initial diagnosis and treatment of injuries and illnesses, so they had to find something else to, you know...aid.
When they announced the creation of Second Aid, anticipation was sky high. When people found out that Second Aid was just having a stranger stand behind you and move your hand for you while you brushed your teeth, everyone got over it pretty fast and decided to just quit while they were ahead. No one's dared to try to come up with another one since.
Please know that we are likely shifting the way we do “first aid” this year, with much more self-help / radical self reliance.
The general plan at this time, subject to change, is that we’ll have a self-help first aid station with basic supplies, and volunteers available on radio to talk with folks who might need to seek higher level care.
No volunteers, in any team, are expected to provide care you are not trained to give.
When you aren’t sure what to do, you should escalate the question by radio to the safety sphere lead, or the producer on call.
If you have first aid or medical experience and would like to assist, please reach out to Sauerkraut, at [email protected], and let’s talk!
