Being prepared for an event where you'd need some sort of medical training, whether it's an accident on the side of the road, a shooting of some sort, or any of the other incidents that happen on a day to day basis — is all important.
If you haven't noticed, we've been getting more into the medical aspect of self-defense, which is why we've been shipping things like ankle IFAK Kits to our Guardian Nation members, and sell similar items in our store.
But, then it dawned on us, what if our audience doesn't know how to use the medical equipment we sell? What if their lives are impacted by a self-defense incident and they need to administer first aid to a loved one and have no idea what to do?
What if our tribe of people are first responders to a horrific accident on the side of the road, have medical equipment but no skills to use said equipment actually making things worse for those involved?
Not good. So, we conducted a survey to find out what people know, and learned that a lot of people did have some sort of medical training in their past.
That's great news, but there are still some problems. First being, that this stuff changes often and having a refresher is a good thing. There's also the fact that most of the medical training out there doesn't come close to covering major trauma.
So, we thought we'd take Brian, our navy Corpsman who is formally trained in combat medicine with actual combat experience serving alongside Marines, and have him teach a series of classes in our FREE virtual combat medical training summit.
Now, as a Marine myself, I can tell you that there's nobody better to have by your side than a Navy Corpsman, someone we Marines lovingly call “Doc.” Not only is Doc trained with valuable life saving skills, he's also willing to return fire and travel through hell and back to save one of his Marines.
This is one of the reasons why I knew we'd hire him from the pool of other applicants who applied for a position here more than a year ago before even interviewing him. Hopefully you get the point that the instructor is qualified-enough that I'd trust my life to his hands … but I'm getting off topic here.
We partnered up with Mountain Man Medical to host this Summit, because they offer the highest quality trauma kits out there at a price that can't be beat. Oh, and Brian, the aforementioned combat Navy Corpsman who is teaching the class has been instrumental in designing those kits.
What you'll learn in this Medical Summit:
- How to save lives in a combat or massive trauma scenario including:
- All critical gear and equipment you need to have and know how to use
- The PMARCHP Frame Work
- P – Patient & Provider safety
- M – Massive Hemorrhage
- A – Airway
- R – Respirations
- C – Circulation
- H – Head Trauma & Hypothermia
- P – Pain Management
I can't emphasize enough how important this is. You WANT to have the ability to save life and to know how to use the proper tools for the job as you learn from someone who has actually done work to save lives before.
If you have the ability to shoot in self-defense, but not the ability to save life, I highly urge you to sign up for the summit. Heck, even if you're an EMT, you've got nothing to lose by watching a combat vet to refresh some of your skills. It is FREE, after all.
To sign up for the FREE Combat Medical Summit that starts next week, visit this page and input your information. You'll be glad you did, and who knows … maybe one day you'll save a life with the knowledge you learn in that class.
