In-person: Crisis and basic Life Saving Intervention
April 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm PDT
It is difficult to know how we will react to a medical crisis, particularly if a loved one is involved. Even if we do not freeze in the moment, how will we know what to do to help save a life of a loved one, friend or stranger?
This entry-level course will be presented by Fieldcraft Survival and is designed to teach basic Life Saving Interventions (LSI) that will help save an injured person’s life until emergency medical services (EMS) can arrive. It includes principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) based on the most relevant battlefield lessons learned from the Special Operations Medical Community.
The course includes practice during incident simulations. You will learn how to better handle stressful situations while applying new life saving skills. This experience and practice staying cool in a crisis will likely be helpful in many areas of our lives as leaders.
The 9 hour course utilizes classroom, skills sessions, and scenario-based training to deliver material and foster confidence in the skills taught. In this course the student will learn to identify threat environments they may encounter in everyday life then assess, treat, and evacuate casualties based on the defined threat.
