Our goal is for Henrico Citizens and the community is to be and feel safe. It is important that you feel safe where you live, work or spend your leisure time. There are ways that you can get involved to help improve the safety of your own community. These videos will get you started on your safety and wellbeing journey.
Stroke – During a stroke, every minute counts! Fast treatment can lessen the brain damage that stroke can cause. By knowing the signs and symptoms of stroke, you can take quick action and perhaps save a life—maybe even your own.
Heart Attack & Cardiac Arrest– A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, happens when a part of the heart muscle doesn’t get enough blood. The more time that passes without treatment to restore blood flow, the greater the damage to the heart muscle.
First Aid for Severe Bleeding – Severe bleeds include lacerations to arteries, serious internal bleeding or a major injury over an extended area. Severe bleeding needs immediate medical attention.
COVID & FLU – Both the flu and COVID-19 cause a cough and shortness of breath, but overall, COVID-19 symptoms tend to last longer than the flu.
Anaphylactic Reaction – Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to something you’re allergic to, such as peanuts or bee stings.
