As Public Clamors for First Aid Training
Gloria Thackaberry "suffers" from a severed artery in the palm,
a fractured arm and internal injuries?all for the benefit of Red Cross
first aid students at Alexandria, Va. First-aider Richard Harris
rendered the proper first aid care.
Quick to sense the necessity for first aid training to meet the
emergencies which confront a warring nation, hundreds of thousands
?f Americans have enrolled in Red Cross fir6t aid courses.
Since fateful December 7 an estimated 40,000 a day have signed
up to receive the Red Cross first aid instruction, and Red Cross
officials foresee no immediate slackening of public demand for the
More than 60,000 American Red Cross first aid instructors ara
engaged in teaching the classes. Throughout the country physicians
by the thousands have volunteered to augment this armv of in
structors. Many of them have taken Red Cross "refresher' courses
before assuming the instructor's role.
Approximately 8,000 Red Cross highway first aid stations and
mobile units, equipped to give emergency care to victims of highway
accidents, are spotted across the continent ready to meet civilian
first aid needs should enemy bombings make neoessarjr the evacua
tions of cities.
