To Trauma Incidents
9-11, Trolley Square, Virginia Tech... Every day in our country there is some traumatic event taking place. Many citizens carry firearms to protect themselves and family. We believe we should care just as much about helping our fellow citizens AFTER such an event as we do about self defense during the event.
This course is intended to introduce people outside the medical profession to techniques of trauma care. That is, treating very serious injuries on scene as the first responder. Whether it is a gun shot victim, a car crash or a terrorist bombing, as citizens we should be trained to help each other. International events have proven that the FIRST responders will almost always be average citizens. This course is most certainly applicable to anyone who carries or uses a firearm as well as school teachers, security officers, shooting range employees, firearms Instructors, range safety officers and any citizen who is serious about emergency preparedness.
Topics include (8 hours). Accepted for In-service training (CEU) for security officers and EMTs.
