Military corpsman Brian McLaughlin, now with Mountain Man Medical (no relation) joins John to discuss getting trauma training during Stop the Bleed Month.  Several organizations offer training, starting with your local fire department. Contact them and ask if they offer on-location Stop the Bleed Training for your group or company.

A very basic Stop the Bleed Course is available online at   STOP THE BLEED® Interactive Course | Stop The Bleed   This covers only tourniquets and wound packing.

Mountain Man Medical, IFC’s trauma kit partner, has created a very thorough 2-hour course based on the military’s Trauma Combat Casualty Care experience.  This training goes beyond Stop the Bleed course to include Chest Seals. You can take this for free by signing up at Emergency Trauma Response Training Course | Mountain Man MedicalYou will be emailed a link to start the modules.

Remember that you need the right tools to go with that training, so IFC has pre-assembled kits with all the professional gear you will need at:  Iowa Firearms Coalition (IFC) MedKits | Mountain Man Medical
