    I am wanting to implement a safety procedure manual and a first aid program that will be carried in the truck. The safety procedures will be gone through with the new hirers on their first day and once a month after-wards. The first aid procedures will include basic first aid and what should be done when and and if an accident happens. Does anyone have a copy that I can go by? Thank you

    First let me say that I am a firefighter and have helped out on several medical situations. I do not have a comment on the safety part. BUT, in first aid , I would get ahold of the Red Cross or Local FD or EMS and just pay for your people to take a 1 day CPR and first aid class. That is something they need to know and act upon immediatly if the situation arises. A book is not the answer. However The last Red Cross class I took came with a firs aid book that each participant got to take home. You could put that book in the truck after the class.
