  • Tactical Range Medicine
    Here is what you need to know about the Tactical Range Medicine Class
    So, you are headed out to the range for a session. You have your range bag, firearms, ammunition, ear protection, eye protection, weather appropriate clothing, and all the gear you need for the day. 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. 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

    and more…

    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.

  • Refuse To Be A Victim Seminar
    Here is the information you need to know to be prepared to host us for a 2-5 hour Refuse To Be A Victim Seminar
    Experts agree that the single most important step toward ensuring your personal safety is making the decision to refuse to be a victim. That means that you must have an overall personal safety strategy in place before you need it. Through a four-hour seminar (shorter presentations are available) called Refuse To Be A Victim®, you can learn the personal safety tips and techniques you need to avoid dangerous situations and avoid becoming a victim.

    Hundreds of federal, state, and local law enforcement officials across the country have implemented Refuse To Be A Victim® into their crime prevention and community policing initiatives.

    Here are just a few of the topics presented in the Refuse To Be A Victim® seminar:

    Home Security
    Personal Security
    Automobile Security
    Workplace Security
    Technological Security

    Here are some frequently asked questions that may be helpful to your understanding of the Refuse To Be A Victim® program.

    Q: Is this a self-defense course?
    A: It is a personal safety program that teaches strategies you can use to avoid situations where self-defense is required. This course focuses on proactive courses of action, rather than reactive. Criminals prefer easy targets. By making yourself more difficult to prey upon, you lessen your risk of criminal attack. That means having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it.

    Q: Who can attend the seminars?
    A: The Refuse To Be A Victim® seminar covers topics that pertain to both men and women. The information covered is appropriate for children to senior citizens. In addition, the Refuse To Be A Victim® program materials also include a special teaching module for parents which discusses tips for children ages pre-school to young adults of college age.

    Q: Can I sponsor an RTBAV Seminar?
    A: The Refuse To Be A Victim® seminar can be sponsored by educators, church or civic groups, corporately in the workplace, or open to the general public.

    A complete seminar may last as long as four or five hours and include the entire lesson plan, but a modified seminar may be as short as one or two hours and cover topics that best suit the needs of a particular audience. This is not a firearms instruction course, and does not include instruction in physical combat self-defense. Seminars teach common weaknesses that criminals may take advantage of, and a variety of corrective measures that are practical, inexpensive and easy to follow. The seminar includes classroom instruction on criminal psychology, automobile crimes; cyber safety, home security, and a variety of crime prevention strategies including carjack avoidance techniques, use of personal safety devices, and more. Students receive the Refuse To Be A Victim® student handbook, NRA Refuse To Be A Victim® brochure, NRA Become A Refuse To Be A Victim® Instructor Brochure, Refuse To Be A Victim® Firearms Supplement, and a course completion certificate.
