 "I watched my friend pass away and there was nothing we could do..." 

 - a comment from a friend who experienced a deadly accident.

  Unfortunately they were not prepared  and did not have the training to help their friend. 

Class Overview:

Our Critical Trauma is for everyday preparedness and completes your ability to be a "Protector" in your community and to your loved ones. From every day traffic accidents to mass casualty events... the act of being prepared with knowledge on how to provide life saving care is critical. 

Taught by former and active duty S.W.A.T. Officers, Tactical Paramedics, Military, and Department of Defense contractors.

Critical Trauma is defined as:

A serious injury that places life a in jeopardy, and involves a patient that is unconsciousness, experienced a significant loss of blood, an acute fracture or amputation of a leg or arm, burns over a major portion of the body, loss of sight or other significant losses that require immediate medical attention in a hospital or by a qualified medical practitioner.

An unfortunate event:

such as an Active Shooter, you and the people around you are the "first responders". Law enforcement first responsibility is to secure the environment and EMT's will stage outside the perimeter until the environment is deemed secure... This means that life saving help may not come as quickly as you expect. Having the right equipment onsite and the training on that equipment may mean the difference between life and death.

Common Questions:

Question: Why am I not allowed to bring my weapon, even if concealed ?
In this course we are training you for unexpected medical emergencies that you might find yourself in or arriving to. During the length of this course our instructors will simulate several medical emergencies or attacks that result in simulated injuries. Some of these simulation may appear to be realistic and in order to keep a safe training environment weapons are not allowed to ensure no accidental weapon are drawn. There is no exceptions to this policy.

What others are saying:

"My husband and I just took the two day CPR & First Aid/Critical Care Field Trauma class and it was WONDERFUL!!! The instruction was so far beyond a CPR class (which I took a few years ago). We covered so much first aid, real life situations, supplies & gear just on day one! Day two was all about critical field trauma. We learned a lot about physiology, technical aspects, stress/cognitive abilities on the parts of both the caregiver and patient. We learned how to apply tourniquets, under pressure of chaos and gun fire, blood simulations, carry techniques etc. It was a weekend FULL of life saving information. Not only could it save you or your families life in a freak accident situation hiking, mountain biking etc...but it todays world with the rioting and violence, it could very well be a situation we find ourselves in at the grocery store."
