Mohave County residents now have 20 more trained and certified immediate responders among our ranks! On Tuesday, April 28th, these dedicated Western Arizona Law Enforcement Training Academy recruits completed the necessary educational requirements to obtain American College of Surgeon’s Bleeding Control Certification.
Law enforcement professionals need basic training in Bleeding Control principles so they can provide immediate, frontline aid until medical personnel can take over care of an injured person. Due to many situations, there may be a delay between the time of injury and the time healthcare professionals are on the scene. Without decisive intervention in these circumstances, preventable deaths may occur.
Although no single set of skills or response can fit all injury, trauma, or active violence situations, making sure everyone knows his or her options and can react decisively will save valuable time and lives. As members of our extended community family, these exceptional men and women now have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help save a life!
