Lifesaver

“In high risk environments, lives are not saved by doctors and nurses. Lives are saved by the person who provides early and effective first aid.”

  • Tactical Lifesaver

 

The primary goal of the Civilian Casualty Care/Tactical Lifesaver course is to improve the survivability of accidental and non- accidental life-threatening injuries encountered by operators or civilians in the field. This course is not designed to turn people into medics, but rather teach the time-critical skills that may permit survival long enough for victims to obtain definitive medical care. This course takes a very hands on approach with practical/skills exercises, and it emphasizes the proper mind set. We will teach proper equipment selection and how to improvise should the need arise. Civilian Casualty Care/Tactical Lifesaver is for anyone wishing to have the skills necessary to save themselves, loved ones, or their fellow man, should they suffer a serious injury. You simply CANNOT afford not to take this class!
