Hiawatha, Iowa, June 30, 2009Think Safe Inc continues to deliver first aid innovation with the launch of the newest version of the First Voice Emergency Instruction Device (EID).

About one-third of mothers said they do not believe their babysitter knows how to help a child who is choking, and almost half said they believe their babysitter doesn’t know CPR. In addition, over ten percent of mothers do not believe their babysitter can handle any medical emergency. “With over 14 million unintentional, disabling injuries occurring in the home annually, we provide a solution to these challenges to improve outcomes and decrease stress or panic,” says CEO/President of Think Safe Paula Wickham.

The First Voice EID steps a responder through all major and minor first aid events with clear and calm, multi-step instructions, and is available for organizations to incorporate into their first aid programs. The device is only one and a quarter inch thick, runs on three AA batteries and is backed by a three-year warranty on all parts.

All protocols of the new EID are compliant with 2005 approved American Heart Association and American Red Cross First Aid and CPR protocols. With the new “Language” button responders can now hear emergency instructions in Spanish or English, with the capability of 20 or more additional languages available.

Think Safe Inc is committed to setting new standards for comprehensive emergency readiness and response. Manufacturing products for complete injury management and providing services that improve access to first aid and CPR training, Think Safe Inc products and services are a good fit for corporate and industrial environments, parks and recreational facilities, schools, convention and sport centers, remote or high-risk locations, and a host of other public gathering places.

Barbecue Tips for the Weekend

June 26, 2009

As we fire up our barbecues for the weekend, and are nearing the Fourth of July, here are some tips for proper maintenance and operation from Catherine Jones of Safety XChange.

Do:

  • Operate BBQ outdoors only, 10 feet from house, garage and trees
  • Maintain your BBQ by replacing rusted or worn hoses and fittings
  • Test for leaks and check tubes for blockage
  • Keep lid open when lighting gas grill, to prevent flash off from gas build-up
  • Turn BBQ off if you smell gas and don’t attempt to relight until the leak is fixed
  • Keep alcohol away from grills
  • Use baking soda on grease fires – not water – and keep the proper fire extinguisher handy
  • Cap lighter fluid immediately and place it a safe distance from the grill

Don’t:

  • Leave an operating barbecue unattended
  • Move an operating BBQ
  • Wear loose or flowing clothing while tending to the BBQ
  • Use gasoline or kerosene as a starter
  • Store LP cylinders indoors
  • Store spare cylinders near the grill or appliances

But that’s why companies like Think Safe and groups like the National Safety Council (NSC) exist! The NSC has a great resouce online that encourages you to get involved in spreading safety awareness this month:

One more part to go! The reason there are a couple of cuts in this clip is because it’s a little difficult to hold the camera in one hand and operate a screwdriver in the other, while keeping the EID stable. I’m sure you understand 😛
