CIVILIAN + PUBLIC TRAINING
BLEEDING CONTROL FOR THE INJURED
The Bleeding Control Basic (BCon) Course v. 1.0 is designed for individuals who have little or no medical training but who may be called upon as immediate responders to provide initial trauma care and bleeding control to a victim of traumatic injury prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS) or in an austere environment.
• The B-Con course is a joint product of the American College of Surgeons Committee
on Trauma and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians’
Prehospital Trauma Life Support.
FIRST CARE PROVIDER
First Care Provider puts medical knowledge in the hands of those who are available to do the most good… The person who gets a patient first! This is designed to help first responders and citizens understand which injuries need to be taken care of first and which can be taken care of later. Those first few minutes can save a life if the right injuries are treated first. Students will have some practical/hands-on time, so they leave the classroom with the confidence to treat a patient. Students will be able to manage life-threatening bleeding with a tourniquet, understand when/where to use wound packing, and understand basic measures for opening and controlling airway trauma. Moving a patient to safety after treatment becomes a priority, so quick and easy methods to get a patient to safety are also covered. No medical background or public safety background is necessary for the class.
TACTICAL EMERGENCY CASUALTY CARE
This 2-day course covers topics designed to decrease preventable death in the tactical situation. Topics include Hemorrhage control; surgical airway control and needle decompression; strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; caring for pediatric patients; and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.
At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.
