Maybe, as an instructor, you are headed out to the range with a group of your students. You have your range bag, firearms, ammunition, ear protection, eye protection, weather appropriate clothing, and all the gear you need for the day. Perhaps you are an individual who wants to be more prepared in the event of a mass casualty event at your workplace. What’s missing? First Aid kit? Training on how to use a First Aid kit?
We’re not just talking about band aids and sunscreen or a cheap kit you can pickup at a discount superstore. Do you have the tools you need in case of a life threatening situation? You don’t have to be an RN, Medical Doctor, First Responder, or EMT to learn how to use a few basic tools that might just save your life or the life of someone else.
We spend lots of time training to protect what we love, learning to hurt those who would hurt us, but do we spend enough time learning to help those who might need it after a Dynamic Critical Incident?
If you are serious about being a good instructor, a responsible shooter, or a better prepared individual at work, in public, or at home, then learning some First Aid and Basic Trauma that is specific to potential accidents in a range environment or a mass casualty event should be high on your "Do List". If this is you, then this workshop is what you are looking for. You can Join us or Host us for this training event.
