Civilian trauma care training has been a hot topic in schools and workplaces over recent years. The rise in popularity is most likely due to the paranoia surrounding potential active shooter situations. Active threat or active shooter occurrences are still statistically low occurrences. Yet, it is important to be prepared for such active shooter events. A greater possibility is being inflicted with a life-threatening wound from an accident, or other form of violence when an active shooter situation occurs.
If your school, workplace or place of worship has already participated in active shooter training; and/or you have invested in trauma care kits as part of your preparation for an active shooter incident, we strongly recommend the proper and professional training on the use and function of the items in the kits.
