argentina_flag1 Argentine Rescue and First Aid School Foundation

In an emergency where every second counts, the rescue and the pre-hospital care that is given to a person can be crucial and can make the difference between life and death. An emergency can strike us at home, work, at a camping site, in the mountains or when it is least expected. This is why it is really important to be prepared to make that difference.

E.A.S.P.A.’s Foundation mission is to supply, in Latin America, the highest quality training needed to provide the rescue and pre-hospital care that each emergency requires. Offer our help in emergency situations, catastrophes or human disasters, through our volunteers. Offer scholarships so that more people can do our training, and offer donations to other organizations in need.

We offer First Aid and Rescue training for urban and rural areas and we also offer training programs customized to the individual’s needs.

Our courses were designed using American Heart Association (AHA 2005 Protocols), Wilderness Medical Society and Wilderness Medical Associates Guidelines.

UTAC_BusinessCardThe provision of emergency medical services in rural areas poses many challenges.
