Bystander Casualty Care Course (BCCC), Orlando Area
Fri, October 27, 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Active Shooter/Hostile Events (ASHE) are no longer a matter of if, but rather when and where. Civilian trauma and military combat experience have shown that bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death in victims of penetrating trauma.
These events evolve rapidly and end quickly, often before law enforcement can arrive. In the initial phase, civilian intervention and response can make a critical difference in who lives or dies.
The Bystander Casualty Care Course (BCCC) has been developed using the principles of civilian trauma care and modern combat medicine to teach basic medical care to individuals. This will allow them to act to save their own lives or the lives of others by taking action before professional medical services are capable of reaching injured victims. Participants will obtain the knowledge and skills required to control bleeding and provide other vital lifesaving procedures in those critical early minutes of an ASHE.
A First Aid Kit which includes: 1-C-A-T tourniquet, 1-Emergency Trauma Dressing - 6", 1-Compressed gauze, 1-Pr Nitrile gloves, 1-Pr Trauma shears, 1-Instruct-in-a minute card, 1-Permanent marker and basic first aid supplies is available in class as an option.
