Dear Member,

In many response situations, LEOs are often first on scene and can initiate lifesaving with some very basic – yet essential – skills. Officers now carry tourniquets to quickly stop the bleed. They can also master the act of pushing hard and fast to deliver hands-only CPR. In this edition of P1 Training eNews – a partnership between PoliceOne and PoliceTraining.net – we take a look at the training and equipment that can prepare officers to deliver potentially lifesaving care in the field.

Sean Curtis outlines four reasons why police officers should become certified in first aid and CPR; Sgt. Glenn French details how tactical combat casualty care training (TCCC) prepares officers to deliver lifesaving care during an active shooter attack or mass casualty incident; and Nicholas Miller lists the recommended items to include in an officer’s individual first aid kit (IFAK).

Dave Smith reviews an incident that shows the tricky transition from engaging with an armed suspect to then rendering aid when that suspect is down, and our training tip lists three things officers should consider when responding to a medical emergency.

Stay safe,
The PoliceOne Team
