    TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES: STOP THE BLEED MONTH

    There is National Focus this month on obtaining training and knowledge related to stopping severe bleeding and the items required to aid in this portion of trauma medicine/first aid and it is open to the public - not just first responders or Mil/Govt personnel..

    All month there have been many FREE courses throughout the United States. You can visit the link below to search your state for class schedules for the remainder of the month. Many of the courses provide a basic stop the bleed EDC type of kit. Pouch, TQ, Packing gauze, bandages, med tape/adhesive strips and knowledge how to use each of them in various bleed scenarios. Class duration is 2 hours.

    Awesome, thanks for the link.
    I took a Dark Angel Medical course last year ($$) so a free class will be a good refresher.

    For those near Fort Worth, I think Caleb Causey of Lone Star Medics is doing one that weekend. I will ask him if they have any more room.

    I'm at the Rangemaster Tactical Conference this weekend, and I'll ask about other trainers and classes.

    I missed a class by lone star medics in my area because I found it only a day before the class. It looked like a great class.
