Violent Force Trauma (VFT)
September 4 @ 13:00 - 17:00$100.00
Violent Force Trauma Training. You will use our medical supplies and through the use of training mannequins, dummies, and real world injuries you will learn to deal with the majority of gun fight fatal injuries. Are you ready to learn the tactics and skills to survive the aftermath until medics arrive?
These training courses are an effort to bring to the best of practical TCCC to the arena of civilian first aid response. The basic CCW or first responder citizen has had training in using their weapon to defend themselves or others but does not have any more than the minimum in medical aid training or experience, if any at all.
This training is a streamlining of the LE/Military “Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)”, which is the medical training that U.S. troops are currently taught to save lives on the battlefield. TCCC is the result of collaboration between U.S. Special Operations Command, trauma doctors, and emergency medical personnel to address the shortcoming in combat medicine at the start, and actually well into the current Wars on Terror.
It is the combination of good medicine vs good tactics. It incorporates some procedures that are proven to save lives but in the past 75 years were shunned in the medical community. TCCC has proven to reduce the number of preventable deaths in violent combat situations.
Also note, the mindset for these procedures are not to necessarily save someone’s life, but to prevent them from dying long enough to receive hospital level care. This is a very basic introduction.
Treatable Combat Injuries in which we can make a difference
