Emergency Preparedness Expert Greg Friese Gives Listeners Tips on First Aid in Disastrous Situations
During episode two of the ‘Holistic Survival Show,’ Jason Hartman interviews Greg Friese, founder of Emergency Preparedness Systems LLC, in a topic about preparing for emergencies and disasters.
“It’s helpful to take incremental steps in terms of individual and family preparedness. So for example, you’re about to become a parent for the first time… you don’t need to become a pediatrician, but you should know how to do infant CPR and that only takes a couple hours,” Friese says after being asked by Hartman on what sort of “realistic”
The theme of the episode, and of the Holistic Survival Show as a whole, is educating and preparing oneself for emergencies to reduce the fear and effect a disaster may have on you and your family. The episode focuses on taking an individual approach with the mentality that anyone, at anytime, could be in a situation where they may need to tend to an emergency.
In speaking about the natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina, Hartman states, “there was a complete lack of preparedness, and way too much interdependence and not enough independence.”
Friese also advocates for ongoing emergency and first aid training. He believes education and training can have a positive effect on recognizing a life-threatening emergency when one is happening. Closing the episode, he suggests the American Heart Association and American Red Cross as great organizations to receive basic CPA and First Aid training.
