Waiting, Waiting….For Spring…

It looks like it is coming…Be here by April….

Today marks the beginning of 8 weeks of travel to and from top secret large military base where MSP holds it’s In-Service training…Of which I get to do the 1st Responder refresher portion of…Or as they call it ‘That 1st Aid stuff!!”…

Well they suffer through it and then I see the life saving awards submitted for them and lo and behold!! Skills we repeatedly pound into their thick skulls they use!!!

Whoa!! Who woulda thunk it!!????

Anyhow… Dress warmly as it is a bit north of home base for me…

Enjoy…

Choking…1 Child Every 5 days..

One child chokes to death every 5 days in the US. Basic emergency medical training should be taught in schools.

Was sent to me by a contact on Linked. Not sure where the data comes from but with the ability to learn a simple and effective maneuver, the Heimlich, very easy to teach and to learn, these could be prevented.

I have taught hundreds, if not thousands, BLS/CPR which includes dealing with choking victims..

Now where is the outrage over this?

So ends my public service announcement for the week..

Where?

Here….

With a bunch of State Troopers..

Is CPR year…and a few skill stations and a scenario..

A bit of MCI training…always good for some…

For others? Ambulance be coming!! (ABC’s)!!

More victims..

No moulage, no time, just placards to describe injuries...Troops had to read!!!

I've managed to control my "urge" to flee when seeing squads...which is a good thing...I guess..

Big controlled burn going on at base. Was dropping plenty of ash on us....
