My name is Leia Wallace, I first took the tactical combat casualty care (T.C.C.C.) class back in March of 2018.
In addition to that class, I also took the advanced delayed medical class on June 9th.
I took these classes, and intend to take more because I want to be able to respond to an emergency with more than just a cell phone. I have grown up shooting guns and taking self defense classes and recognize that anything can go wrong, even on a casual range day.
Having the knowledge of how to pack wounds, apply tourniquets, seal up chest wounds, establish airways, etc. is truly priceless. Aside from being around guns fairly often, this training can be applied to a lot of various situations like car accidents, work related injuries, animal attacks, etc. that’s why I recommend this type of training to everybody, not just people who are around guns.
Many people say when talking about why they carry guns for self defense is that when seconds count, the police are often minutes away. When it comes to emergency trauma care the same could be said about paramedics.
If you value your life and the lives of those around you, take this class and learn the skills needed to stop the bleeding, and start the breathing. It could mean the difference between life and death.
