The Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) has organized two Immediate Casualty Care classes in Iowa. These courses will teach emergency response and patient management. Recent natural disasters and tragedies remind us of the need for individuals to be ready to respond and act in the event of an emergency. As such the IFC is leveraging its extensive network of industry professionals and first responders in order to further serve the people of Iowa.

IFC’s Immediate Casualty Care course will teach participants skills that can save lives in the event of auto, farm, industrial accidents or other traumatic events. Students will receive Stop the Bleed training as well as Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) training that’s been developed specifically for U.S. military forces deployed around the world. From effective tourniquet use and how to stop life-threatening bleeding  and learning how to seal puncture wounds to the chest.

“This is not your summer camp first aid class. These are skills you wish you’ll never need to use, but if they are needed you’ll thank God you have them,” said Kurt Liske, President of the Iowa Firearms Coalition.

The four-hour Immediate Casualty Care course will be offered on December 16th at Cedar Valley Outfitters in Marion and December 17th at CrossRoads Shooting Sports in Johnston.

The courses will be strictly related to emergency medical care and are open to all Iowans, regardless of whether or not they own or carry a firearm. Participants will walk away with the knowledge needed to save lives. “The Iowa Firearms Coalition is doing real work that benefits the people of Iowa. We are putting tangible, life-saving skills into our communities. There’s no doubt in my mind that what we’re doing will save the lives of Iowans in years to come,” said Liske.


The Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) is a grassroots Second Amendment advocacy group. Responsible for bringing uniformity to Iowa’s Permit to Carry process in 2010, legalizing suppressors in 2016 and passing the largest pro-Second Amendment bill in Iowa history in 2017. IFC’s members work to protect and enhance the Second Amendment rights of all Iowans. An affiliate of the National Rifle Association, the IFC actively seeks to foster and promote citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.
