The purpose of Hospital and Healthcare-Based Active Violence Preparedness Training is to educate medical personnel and support staff regarding researched-based, proactive measures that can be organizationally adopted and implemented. This program is designed to supplement current "Lock-down" or "Secure-in-Place" procedures used frequently in our healthcare institutions.
Tragic events have dictated the need for enhanced response options to increase chances of surviving a horrific event. Topics covered during the mobile training team course include policy and procedures review, infrastructure design, proactive use of technology, community resource assistance, mass evacuations and trauma first-aid. The course’s final exercise consists of practical scenarios designed to experience, visualize and reinforce the main concepts.
Course Participants will receive an ICSAVE Training Certificate and may be eligible for 8 Hours Medical Continuing Education Hours (CEs).
Bleeding Control for the Injured (B-Con)
In September of 2014, NAEMT announced a new education course to teach civilians evidence-based, life-saving bleeding control techniques shown to dramatically increase casualty survival. Called “Bleeding Control for the Injured,” aka “B-Con,” this course was developed in response to the Hartford Consensus led by Dr. Lenworth Jacobs, and at the request of Dr. Norman McSwain, who served as a member of the Hartford Consensus working group.
B-Con teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe. The course is designed for NON tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians requiring this basic training. B-Con is consistent with the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus on Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.
NAEMT partners on this and all other trauma initiatives with the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Recently, ACS launched a new website, bleedingcontrol.org that includes a new instructor portal for the B-Con course. This new portal houses all of the B-Con course materials, and will allow B-Con courses to be registered so that ACS and NAEMT can track our progress in training the public in basic bleeding control. There is no cost to use this portal, to access the course materials, or to register courses.
All NAEMT instructors are invited and encouraged to register as a B-Con instructor with ACS. For more information on the national bleeding control initiative, please visit www.bleedingcontrol.org.
