Pima County Justice Court Personnel Our Newest Community Superheroes!
Pima County now has 98 more community superheroes among our ranks! On Wednesday, June 19th, these various county and city justice court employees completed the necessary educational requirements to obtain American College of Surgeon’s Bleeding Control and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) See Something, Say Something Certifications.
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 exceptional men and women now have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to help save a life!
All of us at ICSAVE send out a special thank you to all who attended this essential training event!
