Interactive online course with must-know knowledge to save lives before Emergency arrives
Can you be a hero even if you can’t lift a car or jump over the Grand Canyon? Everyone can be a hero! When you see someone lying on the ground, you can be a hero by being the first one to come and help!
BACON online course will teach you how to stay safe when helping others and how to deal with the two most acute states – massive bleeding and unconsciousness.
A simple, basic algorithm for providing first aid. It focuses only on the most important knowledge everyone should know.
Almost every first aid course (offline and online) can be described in one way: A lot of theory and topics you’ll never apply – they are not important for regular people. Providing first aid for most of the population is mainly about calling emergency. You don’t need to know how to spot and fix a broken bone, how to deal with a snake bite or how to prevent hypothermia. This is what you call emergency for.
But it’s critical to know how to deal with life-threatening states – massive bleeding and unconsciousness. If you don’t do anything, the person can die before emergency arrives. The BACON Online course contains only the most important information. You won’t be buried by any unnecessary theory. You won’t have to invest a lot of time and when you’re done, you will remember the important thing: how to save someone’s life. You can take this online course anywhere you want, anytime you want. You will get a lifetime access, so you can refresh your knowledge whenever you like.
Vlasta Polach (Project creator) is 28 years old, from Czech Republic. Vlasta says “I have been through dozens of (both civilian and military) first aid courses. My last badge is Combat Medic. The last 5 years, I have been teaching hundreds of people first aid. I am not a doctor or paramedic by profession. My profession is teaching itself. I think it’s more important to hand information over in a way that will make it easy to remember and apply what you learned.”
Vlasta has started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising $3,000. The fund raised will be used for the following expenses:
When the campaign’s fully funded, they will choose a public school and give free BACON online courses to all the teachers and students.
In the creator’s own words: I want BACON Medic to reach as many people around the world as possible. Like the slogan goes – Everyone can be a hero. You only need the right skills, to step out of the crowd and help. Everyone should know first aid. I want to change the view of masses on first aid. It’s not about putting patch on a scratched knee. Last but not least – I plan producing new first aid kits as the next step. Unlike most of the kits you can buy today, they will contain what’s really needed. And in an accessible, smart case that you can have on you at all times.
There’re some good early bird discounts available, but you’ve got to be quick!
