If you ever need to perform CPR remember it is 30 compressions with 2 breaths.

Remember the acronym PRICE for treating sprains: PROTECT the injured area, REST the injured area, ICE it, COMPRESS it with a bandage, and ELEVATE it above the heart to prevent swelling.

Whenever you do have to call 911, stay as calm as you can. Speak slowly so the operator can understand you and can get help to you as fast as they can. Remember, don't hang up unless the operator has told you it is ok to.

Should you ever get frostbite, don't use direct heat to warm up the injured area. If you use a stove, fireplace, etc you could burn yourself. Instead, gradually warm up the injured area with warm water.

Question Well-stocked first aid kits need to be updated!

Every so often, check the contents of your first aid kit, particularly if you keep one in your car or other infrequently used place. Such items as adhesive bandages, ointments and creams deteriorate over time, especially if you keep your kit in your car's trunk or glove box.

It'll make things less "painful" in the long run!
