By Battalion Chief Keith Grierson
July 14, 2018

Skippack Fire Company hosted an 8 hour class today through Techline Technologies Training Division on Law Enforcement 1st Responder Tactical Casualty Care. Eighteen members of SFC, along with several members from Skippack Emergency Medical Services and other participants, trained to prepare for crucial trauma situations with realistic training from a cadre of experienced instructors using advanced simulations.

Participants spent time working to:

Understand the rationale for immediate steps for hemorrhage control (including external hemorrhage control, direct pressure and wound packing, early use of tourniquet for severe hemorrhage, internal hemorrhage control by rapid evacuation, and transportation to major hospital/trauma center.

Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg.

Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage.

Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices

Demonstrate the correct application of a topical hemostatic dressing (combat gauze).

Recognize the tactically relevant indicators of shock.

Thank you to all our instructors, guests and especially our volunteer firefighters for giving up a beautiful day to train to be...always ready.
