Event description
The NoVA High Threat Response Program offers Until Help Arrives training for community members interested in learning life-saving skills.

About this Event

For any incident, like the Las Vegas massacre to the Boston Marathon bombings, citizens play a key role in saving lives in the minutes following an attack. It is imperative that we provide the knowledge and skills necessary to help our community save lives until our professional responders can arrive. Attend this class to learn how to recognize violent activities, respond safely, provide immediate rescue tactics to the injured, and report them to 9-1-1 efficiently. The skills you will learn are transferable to countless situations involving traumatic injury, which include car accidents, household injuries, or an active shooter. Come and learn how you can be the help, Until Help Arrives.

Topics include:

• Current environment

• Potentially preventable

• The Survival Arc

• Recognize (knowledge is power)

• Respond (emergency plans, run and/or hide and/or fight)

• Rescue (drags/carries, tourniquets, wound packing, airway management, psychological support)

• Report (what to say, medical first responder interaction)

Attendance is capped at 80 students. Attendees should be able to lift up to 25 lbs. and be able to get up and move around during the training. Dress for the training is casual as you will be practicing and demonstrating skills.

Attendees are asked to complete a 45-minute training as a prerequisite: https://emergency.arlingtonva.us/until-help-arrives/
