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.
