(*we can only have 30 participants)
The FOP Lodge is oﬀering an opportunity to attend a Saturday class on how to properly apply a tourniquet and treat gunshot injuries. Your instructor will be Sgt. Matt Hunady, former Navy Corpsman who served with the Marines. He is currently employed by the Baldwin County Sheriﬀ’s Oﬃce and teaches each deputy on ﬁrst response for traumatic injuries. The skills he teaches not only apply to gunshot injuries, but those at any medical emergency with loss of blood encountered. All BCSO oﬃcers are carrying tourniquets as part of their duty gear.
The fee for the class with be $50, and will include a professional grade tourniquet (cost approximately $26 dollars) for you to keep. The class should last about two hours, and his class has had very positive reviews. You should ﬁnd the tourniquet included to be a handy addition to your range bag or your motor vehicle.
We all recognize that should an incident occur at our range, it may be several minutes before a ﬁrst responder could arrive. The life you save in those few minutes may be your own by being prepared.
FOP member Tom Montgomery has volunteered to be the point of contact for the event. You will be expected to pay in advance to facilitate ordering the tourniquets.
Any person interested may contact Tom at: firstname.lastname@example.org, please caption your inquiry “Tourniquet Class”.
