First Aid course
« on: December 03, 2017, 05:54:18 PM »
Some military medics have offered to teach a 1 - 2 hour class on first aid to include basic anatomy, tourniquets, chest seals, nasal pharangeal, what should go in a kit, quick clot products, and other stuff.  No certification will be given.  Cost is very minimal ($5-$10) or possibly free.  Location is Koko Head Shooting Complex on the weekend after the range closes or someone can donate classroom space.

Getting a preliminary headcount.

Serious inquiries only, no flakes.

Course is confirmed.  Space is limited, email todd@practicalmarksman.com with your name and phone number or signup on the meetup page at https://www.meetup.com/HawaiiGGG/events/246653869/ to reserve a seat.


This first aid course will teach basic human anatomy, bandages, tourniquets, quick clot bandages, how to build a kit, and other life saving techniques. Great class for firearms instructors, RSO's, and those interested in treating injuries on and off the range. Pizzas and drinks provided.

NO CERTIFICATION WILL BE GIVEN AND INSTRUCTORS ALONG WITH HAWAII GUYS AND GALS WITH GUNS ASSUME NO LIABILITY IF YOU USE THESE FIRST AID TECHNIQUES.

Has a seminar like this with a couple medics, Navy corpsman, and a couple EMTs a few months ago.  Great stuff and a LOT of information they can share.  Particularly showing you how to use or apply certain first aid implements.  We joked about demonstrating how to use the tube.  I have had training on some of that stuff before, but one thing that I've noticed is that people are surprised as how to properly apply a TQ, particularly how tight it needs to be.  Of course, they demonstrated the TQ on me simulating a lower leg injury.   :grrr:

Keep sending in the replies.

I have to get 15 people interested first before they plan the event.

Might be held at Diamond Head instead, someone donated classroom space.
