Active Shooter Situations can happen anywhere. Schools, Malls, and as we recently witnessed, Nightclubs.
If you do not carry a firearm, you can still be a valuable resource to help save lives. Most EMS protocols state medical responders must stage outside of the threat area and wait for the “all clear” signal before they can enter and start treating the injured. The result is wasted time where lives are lost.
This course will cover how to respond even before the scene is fully secure, and teach you how to operate in what is commonly referred to as the “Warm Zone”. We will cover how to triage and treat the injured, establish a staging area, how to set up an evacuation plan, and how to properly communicate all this to follow-on responders such that lives can be saved. You will learn how to do all of this while staying safe.
If you are a civilian we will cover what medical supplies you can have available to help in these events and how to use them, along with how to make improvised supplies.
If you are a first responder, this course will give you valuable insights in how to respond yourself if you are off-duty, or will help you better establish proper procedures if your protocols allow for immediate response.
This course is fully applicable for Civilians, Fire Fighters, LEO, and EMS.
No live fire ammunition required. All equipment will be provided.
This course will run from 10-5 on Saturday and 9-4 on Sunday.
