Construction Technologies Professionals Our Newest Community Heroes!

Pima County residents now have 20 more trained and certified immediate responders among their ranks! On Thursday, September 27th, these exceptional young men and women from the county’s Joint Technical Education District’s (JTED) Construction Technologies Program completed the necessary educational requirements to obtain American College of Surgeon’s Bleeding Control Certification.

Civilians need basic training in Bleeding Control principles so they can provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders 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 a first responder is on the scene. Without civilian 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 young professionals now have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help save a life!
