Care Under Fire/Tactical First Aid-Citizen (TFA-C)

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).
