 One takeaway from the recent mass shooting in  
 Las Vegas was that many lives were likely saved 
 by concert attendees rendering first aid and 
 transporting the wounded to hospitals.

 In a chaotic situation, particularly involving an 
 active shooter and multiple casualties, paramedic
 and ambulance response will be delayed until the 
 scene is controlled. Law enforcement and 
 Emergency medical agencies understand this,  
 and are embracing the concepts of “casualty 
 collection points” and “force protection” teams to 
 protect medics and allow casualties to be moved 
 out of the direct treat area.

 This takes substantial time in a big casualty 
 event. It may be a half hour or more before a 
 victim will have a “professional” rescuer working 
 on them.
 The people on scene have to be their own “first 
 responders”.
 Solid basic first aid skills and the will to take 
 action will pay huge dividends, but like all skills 
 these must be ingrained and rehearsed to be 
 reliable in a crisis.
 Due to student inquiries about gunshot/trauma 
 first aid training we are adding more tactical 
 medicine classes to our schedule.
