There will come a time in every first responder's career when they
will need to perform life saving medical intervention in the line of
duty. Deaths resulting from traumatic injury can be prevented by proper
treatment at the scene by a first responder. This course will provide
you with the knowledge and tools needed to save your life or the life of
someone else. Lifesaving methods
are demonstrated using a Self-Aid Buddy Aid (SABA) kit and the methods taught will enable
officers to use improvised materials if SABA kit is not available.
This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements SABA (Self Aid, Buddy Aid) Course #38763.
Participants will not receive a SABA kit as part of their participation in the course. If you are interested in receiving a fully stocked SABA kit as part of your training, please register for one of these course offerings.
