We’re not just talking about band aids and sunscreen. 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 out on the range.
If you are a Firearms Instructor, you need to seriously consider some Basic First Aid; like learning to use a tourniquet, and maybe even getting CPR Certified (we offer this as an add-on to some of our workshops).
If you are serious about being a responsible shooter and learning some First Aid that is specific to potential accidents on a shooting range, then this workshop is for you.
Here are some of the topics presented in the Tactical Range Medicine Workshops:
Proper Mindset for Medical Emergencies
H,A,B,C’s (Hemorrhage, Airway, Breathing, Circulation)
Components of the Individual Medical Kit (IMK)
Hands On Training of the IMK
Basic and Advanced Airway Management
Treatment of a Sucking Chest Wound
Airway Adjunct Devices
Basic First Aid
Advanced Wound Care
Application Of Hemostatic Agents and Bandages
Application of Tourniquets
Recognition and Treatment of various Injuries (gunshot, burns, lacerations, orthopedic, environmental)
Treatment of Hypovolemic (hemorrhagic) Shock
911 and Police Protocols
With these workshops, we provide you with a basic First Aid kit that includes many of the items we discuss in class. This is not an off the shelf kit. We have put together the kit we believe contains the basic items you should have out on the range in the event of a gunshot wound, or other traumatic event.
