Learn in a lifelike situation
Accident imitation is a form of simulation where besides portraying injuries in a realistic way, we can also present the behaviour of the victim, their reaction to the treatments and the characteristic features of an accident or catastrophe’s site.
During first aid competitions and emergency response drills, we can make the exercises more lifelike by imitating an accident. This way, first aid providers and paramedics can experience a realistic rendition of the victim’s behaviour and the way their state changes due to having been treated.
Why is it important?
In the event of an accident/sickness, the quick and professional intervention of a well-prepared first aid provider can save lives.
If the first aid responder can experience the sight and the behaviour of a seriously injured person, then in a real life situation, they can effectively provide first aid by properly interpreting the victim’s reactions.
First aid responders and rescue units should not be satisfied with the knowledge acquired during the course. They should maintain and develop their skills by practicing regularly.
The Hungarian Red Cross is the first and the institution in Hungary that uses this special educational and practice method.
Imitators working for the Hungarian Red Cross also participate in drills organised by authorities (Disaster Management, Hungarian Defence Forces) because preparing responders in lifelike situations (with the help of accident simulation) is of key importance.
