Care Under Fire/Tactical First Aid-Citizen (TFA-C)
Non-medically trained individuals, such as teachers, event staff, hunters, hikers, security personnel and private citizens
This course is adapted from modern tactical medicine as taught to our military and special operations law enforcement personnel. Concepts covered in this course include how to address immediate life-threatening injuries such as bleeding control, airway management, tourniquets, pressure dressings, occlusive dressings; how to properly prepare your medical gear, Good Samaritan and other legal aspects. We teach how to treat the most commonly encountered preventable causes of death. This is NOT a typical basic first aid class. It will address specific injuries seen with penetrating and other trauma commonly encountered in catastrophic events. Attendees should be prepared to engage in practical, hands-on exercises, which will leave you far better prepared to respond and react to critical situations (wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty).
