Quick Reference guides
Learning new procedures is an essential skill in any professional setting. However, it can be challenging to remember every single term, command, or symbol associated with these procedures. This is where a crib sheet can come in handy. Generally, a crib sheet refers to any short reference that provides a quick and easy way to access important information about a particular subject.
Crib sheets are not meant to replace in-depth learning or understanding of a subject. Instead, they are a helpful tool for quickly refreshing one’s memory or accessing important information. In today’s fast-paced work environment, having a crib sheet on hand can save valuable time and increase efficiency.
In a time of the disaster, quick and efficient actions are critical. As such, members must remember the essential information they have been trained on. To facilitate this, small cheat sheets have been created, containing the most critical information needed during a disaster. These cheat sheets remind members, allowing them to act promptly and appropriately when needed.
The documents are intended to be printed on business cards on both sides and a clip to hold them together and attached to your backpack. This way, they are ready to use when a problem comes up.

Simple triage and rapid treatment
Simple triage and rapid treatment (START) is a triage method used by first responders to classify victims quickly during a mass casualty incident (MCI) based on the severity of their injury. The method was developed in 1983 by the staff members of Hoag Hospital and Newport Beach Fire Department located in California and is currently widely used in the United States.
