First Aid

At CFC we understand that the threats we face in today’s world are complex and ever changing. A firearm isn’t the only answer during a critical incident, and oftentimes a firearm isn’t an answer at all. If you can take a life, you should be able to save a life. 

 

What do you do after shots have been fired? What if you can’t get to the shooter? What happens if you walk in on the aftermath of a mass casualty event? What do you do if there is no shooter and you've just witnessed a motor vehicle accident with critical injuries?

 

This course is designed to provide you with answers to those types of questions and give you the basic skills necessary to save a life and act as your own first responder. The skills learned in this course are applicable during nearly any critical incident where injuries have or are likely to occur. These are essential, easy to use, lifesaving skills that everyone should have regardless of whether they chose to carry a firearm or not. The first aid skills you learn in this course are applicable to more than just gun fighting and could be utilized for things like: hunting accidents, motor vehicle crashes, industrial accidents, hiking and out-door recreation related injuries, terrorist attacks, active shooter incidents, violent criminal encounters and any other incident where critical injuries could occur.
