In last 2000, The International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) designated the every 2nd Saturday of September as World First Aid Day. The educational campaigns and activities have been carried out to promote the importance of first aid with the Red Cross movement around the world.


The theme of this year's World First Aid Day is í║First Aid with Vulnerabilities(the wide-spread supply of first aid skills, without exception)í╗. It was selected with the purpose of promoting quick responses in emergency situations by providing expertise and information. The specific target is the safety vulnerable such as the elderly, childreníĄteenagers, and the disabled.
