14-August-2019 – Bleeding Control Training

 

Members of Fire-Rescue conducted the BECON (Bleeding Control) training course for members of Nova Church on Wednesday August 14th at 18:30.  In the one and one half hour course, participants learn that with little or no medical training they can act as immediate responders to provide initial trauma care and bleeding control to a victim of traumatic injury prior to the arrival of emergency services.  The course included both classroom and practical sessions where the participants practiced placing tourniquets on simulated trauma patients and other bleeding control techniques.  For more information about BECON you can go to www.bleedingcontrol.org.
