Basic Medical Response
for Law Enforcement Personnel
8-hour program will provide law enforcement personnel with a basic understanding
of initial medical treatment for emergency situations. Through lecture
and hands-on exercises, students will learn to identify types of serious
injuries and provide basic life saving techniques during the first few
critical minutes. These tactics are useful in treating injuries
to fellow officers, victims of crime, and offenders. Class exercises
will involve applications of first aid techniques specific to police
officers and discussion of useful and effective equipment available
to police officers.
Students are encouraged, though
not required, to bring department issue CPR/First Aid equipment, not
to include AEDs. Upon successful completion of this program participants
will become CPR/AED certified through the American Heart Association.
