The article provides tips on handling common emergencies in meetings and events. According to Michael Giordano, a senior instructor for ADH Health & Safety Training Center, an initial step in first-aid preparedness is to find out what the minimum emergency response is at the workplace and at the meeting venue. When dealing with burns, Giordano advises to first get rid of whatever is causing the burn and then cool the burn.
