About the event
Gem City Gun Club and Household HQ are proud to team up to provide members and visitors with life-saving medical training to keep you safe. Accidents can happen whether you are in the woods this hunting season or on the flat range preparing for competition. Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death from trauma. The American Red Cross First Aid for Severe Trauma (FAST) program provides participants with the knowledge and skills they need to respond to an emergency involving life-threatening bleeding, including how to:
- Recognize a life-threatening bleeding emergency.
- Ensure safety and communicate effectively in an emergency.
- Control life-threatening bleeding using direct pressure, a tourniquet, or both.
The program is designed to enhance participants’ ability to take decisive, lifesaving action to assist a person with a traumatic injury and life-threatening bleeding until professional responders arrive. To ensure participants are set for success, a 15% discount is available for those who attend to get the equipment that they need when they shop My Medic at the Household HQ store.
