Your lead instructor has 25 years' experience as a Paramedic, Firefighter, Navy Corpsman, Army Combat Medic, and Flight Paramedic

Range Emergency Care Course (4 hrs)

This information and skill packed course focuses on what can be done RIGHT NOW to care for select life-threatening events e.g. cardiac arrest, penetrating wounds such as from bullets and knives, amputations, external hemorrhage, severe allergic reactions, heat stroke and seizures with extensive hands-on practice available for all participants.

Skills you will learn and practice include the simple but highly effective skills of chest compressions using the Cardio Cerebral Resuscitation (CCR) method, airway positioning, tourniquets, trauma dressings, “Epi-Pens” etc. and other items contained in the OmniFAK-911 using instructors and each other for practice, etc. Select actual graphic footage of cardiac arrests, CPR-in-progress, gunshot wounds and other injuries are shown so participants learn what true emergencies look and sound like. Each graphic video or picture is followed by a brief guided discussion about degree of severity, what options for effective care exist, and how to separate the “drama” from the reality. While the REC course is tailored for people with minimal to no medical training, past courses have included participants with backgrounds ranging from first aid instructors to trauma nurses. Questions, observations, and answers are not only welcome, but encouraged. Everyone leaves the REC Course with enhanced knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Course Duration: 7.5 hours

Min/Max Class Size: 6-15

Cost per Student: $140

Target Audience: Those who want to be ready and capable of providing lifesaving care to themselves, their family, and anyone needing it. No medical training or background is needed for this course, but even those with medical training will learn effective care beyond that offered by any other 1st Aid / Lifesaver course around.

Pre-Requisites: A willingness to learn, question, and practice, knowing that soon you will be better empowered to help in an emergency. Bring your questions, “What ifs” and even your own favorite medical kits or devices. Each question or device will be thoroughly addressed.

Course Purpose:  The difference between life or death does not depend on advanced medical care nearly as much as it does on the right “low tech.” In fact, one of the most common axioms in Emergency Medical Services is “Basic Life Support before Advanced Life Support.” This course will not only demystify what it takes to save a life, it will show you how simple and doable effective care is, equipping you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to provide simple, highly effective life-saving care until professional emergency medical care arrives.

Setting & Method of Instruction: The course is taught in a classroom setting, using real-life graphic footage and/or photos of life-threatening conditions such as cardiac arrests, gunshot wounds, seizures, and other injuries so participants not only understand what true emergencies look like, and how simple most life-saving care is. Each video or picture is followed by a brief guided discussion to discuss the presented case’s actual severity and what options for effective care exist. Throughout the day, participants will repeatedly practice cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), victim positioning, airway maintenance, hemorrhage control, sucking chest wounds, and “Epi-Pens” etc. using the instructors, mannequins, and each other for practice.  Although participants will learn the use of special emergency care items from the OmniFAK-911, they will also be exploring how to make what is needed from commonly available materials.  will be demonstrated and practiced. Though this course is focused on life-threatening emergencies, several other potentially serious conditions will be covered as well.

Be Advised: This course uses public access graphic footage and photos of actual situations involving medical emergencies, physical trauma, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and various types of injuries. These visual aids are not intended to be gratuitous or to satisfy morbid curiosity but are included to help flush the Hollywood out, replacing it with the ability to better distinguish life-threatening v. non-life-threatening injuries in addition reducing the shock you might feel if you encounter the messiness of a true emergency.

Course participants will be allowed to purchase  OmniFAK-911 for $165 each while supplies last.
