PracMed Stop The Bleed Course

Hopefully, by now, I have gotten across the importance of first aid training to all of you. This is not just for shooters or hunters, or parents (I had to hook some food out of my 4 years olds choaking face last night) - but everyone - knowing what to do is 'basic dude stuff' as Patrick McNamara would say.

This is important!

However, hopefully, I have also gotten across my dislike for the state of much of the first aid training on the market today. When I was still in the corporate role, I send the lads (for compliance) to a mainstream workplace first aid course. I went to one myself. Having previously been to outdoors and SARs training course – I was – frankly – dismayed as the state of what I was sending staff off to – and I certainly wouldn’t have wanted to be relying on them should something major occur.

Ok, I admit it, I was just keen to have a play with Simon’s training toys!

And here is the pinch – some of us work in industries, where, should an incident occur – it’s got the potential to be seriously life-threatening. Engineering, machining, shooting, outdoors work – all have the potential for a common style of injury – massive blood loss. In fact, amputation is right up there on the cards as well.
