LUVERNE, AL –-( You can’t shoot a detonated bomb, but you can help the victims survive to see the inside of hospital.

Today’s events in Boston remind us again how fragile and precious life is and how bad things can and do happen to good people.
If you are an armed citizen and responsible enough to effectively employ a firearm to save your own life you are certainly capable of performing stop-gap medical care. In short, if you are ready and willing to make holes, you should be ready and willing to plug them.

Close your eyes and think of the people you see when you rise in the morning, the people you see each day, the faces you see before you go to sleep at night. It is for these people that you should train and prepare to deal with life-threatening trauma. The training and the gear are both available. It’s up to you to decide if they are worth your time and effort. If you are ever witness to a traumatic injury, you will want to do something.

The big question is, will you be able to do something effective or just call 911 and wait helplessly?

Even use a simple plastic bag to seal the wound will do, and use QuikClot if you have it, and a tourniquet (old bike inner-tube tire) works well on extremities and tighten it just enough to stop the bleeding, too tight you can destroy muscle tissue, Lay the Pt on their back or wound side up, comfort them make sure their airway is open and they are breathing.… Read more »

Having a “trauma kit” doesn’t do much good if you don’t know how to use it. Most of the time the potential aid giver does not have time to read the manual while trying to stop the bleeding. Staying in a “Holiday In Express” won’t do much good either!
