Medical skills trainer Columbia Safety of Kennewick, WA is holding classes again. You can check out their calendar of classes here. Retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn was murdered earlier this week, shot by looters breaking into a friend of Dorn’s pawn shop. Some of the incident had been posted as video to Facebook. I watched a good portion of the video. He was conscious and while he was verbally encouraged to stay alive, he didn’t appear to have received any first aid. While I don’t know if rapid first aid would have saved his life, it is a good reminder that 20% of people who have died from traumatic injuries could have survived with quick bleeding control. Please take a Stop the Bleed or first aid course!
