The Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council (NERAC) is sponsoring a one hour Hemorrhage Control Train-the-Trainer course, designed to enable qualified Fire and EMS personnel to instruct peers in the public safety community, as well as the general public, on proper bleeding control techniques. The course, provided through a partnership with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital, will cover tourniquet application as well as other manual methods of controlling hemorrhages sustained as a result of a terrorist attack or other emergency event. The training will combine classroom work with practical demonstrations and practice on mannequins.
This course free of charge for all attendees. Attendees should have at minimum Basic Emergency Medical Technician Certification.
NERAC will provide backfill/overtime reimbursement at up to $35/hr.
This course will take place on Friday, January 18th at 9am and will be held at the Wayland Public Safety Building located at 38 Cochituate Road, Wayland, MA 01778.
Sign up early, as spots are limited! Please register here by January 11th. Your registration will not be considered final until you receive a separate confirmation notice. If you have any questions, please contact Caroline Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-933-0732.
