This course is designed for public safety first responders including police, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders, and teaches the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder's life until EMS practitioners can safely enter a tactical scene.

Course participants will learn life-saving medical actions such as bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe.

Upon completion of the course participants will:

  • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage.

  • Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices.
