Traumatic injury is one of the leading causes of death in America. A large portion of those deaths are from severe bleeding – which is the most preventable cause of death due to trauma. Talon Group’s instruction cadre is delivering the Advanced Bleeding Control course. This course is designed to provide detailed information on the control of severe external bleeding, including the use of direct pressure, commercial pressure bandages, tourniquets and packed dressings all of which can be critical to saving a life.
This program is delivered in a manner to support an organization’s formal Active Shooter Planning and Prevention efforts. In the event an incident occurs at your facility, it is important for your employees to know the methodology of Run-Hide-Fight. It is just as vital for them to know how to medically treat severe bleeding and survive. Loss of life can be prevented with immediate bleeding control by bystanders before professional assistance arrives.
All instructors are certified and have field experience treating gunshot wounds and knife wounds in dynamic environments.
Groups and individuals who have a greater than average chance of witnessing a traumatic event in which heavy bleeding occurs and professional medical care is not readily available or is overwhelmed, such as law enforcement, private security, workplace emergency response team personnel and staff at large events, campuses or large occupied buildings.
