Iowa Firearms Coalition Response to Recent Natural Disasters, Tragedies

USA -(Ammoland.com)- The Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) has organized two Immediate Casualty Care classes in Iowa. These courses will teach emergency response and patient management.

Recent natural disasters and tragedies remind us of the need for individuals to be ready to respond and act in the event of an emergency.

As such the IFC is leveraging its extensive network of industry professionals and first responders in order to further serve the people of Iowa.

IFC’s Immediate Casualty Care course will teach parcipants skills that can save lives in the event of auto, farm, industrial accidents or other traumac events.

Students will receive Stop the Bleed training as well as Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) training that’s been developed specifically for U.S. military forces deployed around the world.

From effective tourniquet use and how to stop life threatening bleeding to how to seal puncture wounds to the chest.

“This is not your summer camp first aid class. These are skills you wish you’ll never need to use, but if they are needed you’ll thank God you have them,” said Kurt Liske, President of the Iowa Firearms Coalition.

The four hour Immediate Casualty Care course will be offered on December 16th at Cedar Valley Ouiers in Marion and December 17th at CrossRoads Shoong Sports in Johnston.

The courses will be strictly related to emergency medical care and are open to all Iowans, regardless of whether or not they own or carry a firearm. Parcipants will walk away with the knowledge needed to save lives.

“The Iowa Firearms Coalition is doing real work that benefits the people of Iowa. We are pung tangible, life saving skills into our communities. There’s no doubt in my mind that what we're doing will save the lives of Iowans in years to come,” said Liske.

Iowa Firearms Coalition has leveraged our extensive network of professional contacts to provide an Immediate Casualty Care 1 course on December 16th and 17th. This course will be open to everyone, whether you’re a firearm owner or not. Rather than trying to limit individual freedoms and push silly, ineffective bans (as some organizations and legislators are actively trying to do), the Iowa Firearms Coalition is putting proven, life-saving skills into the hands of responsible Iowans.

This course is specifically designed to give you the skills needed to stop life-threatening bleeding and chest wounds. Students will receive Stop the Bleed training as well as Tactical Combat Casualty Care training that’s been developed specifically for U.S. military forces deployed around the world. This is not your typical first-aid course. Participants will walk away with the knowledge needed to save lives.

These sessions will be offered at CrossRoads Shooting Sports and Cedar Valley Outfitters. Both of these are valuable, long-time IFC partners and do an excellent job providing quality training to the people of Iowa. Final course details will be released soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars for December 16th and 17th!
