Intense Active Assailant Awareness/First Aid Course Forces Participants to Dig Deep
On March 9th, we hosted our second Active Assailant Awareness for the Concealed Carrier. This class touched on historical events where multiple victims were targeted, as well as awareness levels of the concealed carrier vs the normalcy bias of today's society. We covered color codes, often used to identify the level of reactionary time and response one has throughout their day, dependent upon their surroundings and mindset. We discussed the Observe, Orient, Decide, Act (OODA) loop. The classroom portion of the course concluded with training levels as well as drills for mass casualty's which allow the carrier to be more prepared to address a threat, should they be around to affect the situation, and what happens after the shooting and law enforcement is on scene. After dinner, a New York State Certified Tactical Paramedic taught field expedient first aid using supplies in which they would have readily available to them, as not every average citizen carries with them a tourniquet, an occlusive dressing, or hemostatic gauze. One by one, class participants entered the companies Active Home Invasion System (AHIS) and were confronted with the aftermath of a mass casualty shooting. Chaos ensued and they were tasked with triaging and finding patients in which they could attempt to save or give some sort of life saving intervention with the skills they were just taught. We had approximately 12 role players covered in blood, some injured, some not. Each role player was given a specific character to portray. They acted as severely wounded people with injuries to the femoral artery, sucking chest wounds, gun shot wounds to the head, etc. Children ran around hysterically screaming for their mother, and requesting each student to help them.
This class was able to reach into the souls of each participant as the environment created was all too near reality.
