About this event

Instructors for the Arlington County CERT’s Until Help Arrives Task Force will provide an outdoor skills training and practice to improve attendees’ speed, confidence, and competence in applying life-saving interventions in an emergency.

Attendees should have attended an Until Help Arrives training event before registering for this class. Skills covered in practice include: commercial and improvised tourniquet application, wound packing and pressure dressings, airway and breathing interventions, and management of hypothermia and shock.

All participants must dress for the weather, and wear a mask covering the nose and mouth for the duration of the event.

We encourage attendees to purchase their own tourniquets for practice and bring it to the event. We'll have used tourniquets available for those who won't be able to bring their owns.

In the event of rain, the class will be rescheduled. Notification of weather cancellation will be sent via email no later than 8 AM on the day of the event.

Until Help Arrives is a national campaign to teach the public how to be better prepared for and respond to life-threatening situations and injuries. In every life-threatening incident, whether it’s a devastating natural disaster, or a shooting like the Las Vegas massacre, community members play an important role in saving lives Until Help Arrives. UHA provides fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to help our community save lives until our professional first responders can arrive.

The skills you will learn in this class are useful in countless emergency situations, such as traumatic injuries from a car collision, household injury, or events like an active shooting. Come and learn how you can be the help, Until Help Arrives.
