Course Description: This 1-day training course focuses on providing firearms instructors and range safety officers with the skills and knowledge on how to develop emergency medical action plans for response to medical emergencies on the range.
Firearms instructors and range safety officers have one of the toughest jobs in training. They have to be able to deliver teaching points and student performance objectives during live-fire courses - all while controlling a safe training environment.
Unfortunately, even in training, injuries occur. The possibility of injuries occurring during training vary from twisted ankles during dynamic drills, to bee stings, hypothermia and heat stroke, to serious traumatic injuries received from projectile splashback off steel targets and gunshot wounds.
Emergency medical services may not always be readily available or may not have timely access to the training site when injuries occur.
Being able to identify various types of injuries and knowing how to administer emergency medical aid may keep you and your students alive until advanced medical care is available.
Using techniques designed for and proven by the U.S. military, this course introduces firearms instructors and range safety officers to pre-incident planning, preparation, and provision of basic, effective, initial medical care for themselves and others.
Knowing how to identify a serious injury and taking action within the first few minutes of being injured are critical.
Ultimately, surviving a serious injury before help arrives may be up to you! Don't wait until someone gets injured at your range before you consider implementing an Emergency Medical Action Plan (EMAP). Proactive training is the key to being prepared!
