Advanced Trauma Response and Aerial Rescue Workshop
May 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$95
Aerial rescue in English and Spanish taught by 2 instructors!
Tree care workers who practice aerial rescues, take first aid/CPR training, and have first aid kits are doing the right thing, but should we be even better prepared? In our industry, serious injuries happen – injuries that require more than basic first aid treatment and more supplies than are in a basic first aid kit. For example, how would a rescuer deal with a chainsaw wound (which usually requires 100 stitches or more) before EMS arrives at the scene? If the victim has a severed artery, the bleed out factor (which can be a matter of minutes) must be dealt with before EMS arrives. What if the climber experiences a severe cut or puncture and needs to stop his bleeding even before the aerial rescuer gets to him?
The workshop will include aerial rescue and ground operations accident scenarios based on serious trauma that cannot be treated with an average first aid bag.
