Medical Reserve Corps National Preparedness Training Day

Southern Arizona now has 26 more trained and certified immediate responders among our ranks! On Saturday, September 25th, these Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteer professionals completed the necessary educational requirements to obtain American Heart Association Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) for Healthcare Providers and American College of Surgeons Bleeding Control Certifications.

Everyone needs basic training in CPR and Bleeding Control so they can provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders can take over care of a person in cardiac arrest or one who is injured. Due to many situations, there may be a delay between the time the incident takes place 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 illness, 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 dedicated men and women now have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help save a life!
