Accidents happen every day. An accident can be as simple as a fall that scrapes your elbow or sprains your ankle. Our first aid topics can help you deal with these common injuries. They can also teach you how to help someone else who has had an accident or injury. You'll learn the proper treatments that help prevent infection and further injury so you can be safe in all of your everyday activities.
