1-Day Crisis Casualty Care for School Personnel
This course is for school nurses, teachers, administration personnel, maintenance/facility staff and faculty. No previous medical training is necessary.
This course will give you and your staff the skills and tactics you can use to save lives and dramatically change the outcome for a critically injured person in less than 60 seconds. When the crisis event occurs, medical first responders are trained not to be present in the danger area until the scene is safe and secure, this could take up to an hour or more.
When a medical emergency occurs, success or failure will depend on the person on the scene, not the professional first responders. Crisis Casualty Care is not a basic first aid course. The concepts presented are based on the most current and innovative techniques currently in use by the U.S. military as dictated by the Tactical Combat Casualty Care model as well as civilian EMS trauma guidelines.
