All sessions will take place in the Workforce Development Innovation Center training center, Room 201, Warner Center, on the Newark campus of Central Ohio Technical College and Ohio State.
Training will include facilitation by the talented and dynamic instructor, Mr. Craig Ramsey.
Responding in emergency events: How to get help and what to do while waiting for next level of care.
Trauma: falls, burns, electrical, bleeding, fractures, etc.
Stop the Bleed: Developed by the American College of Surgeons in preparation for responding during major traumatic situations such as active shootings.
Medical: diabetic emergency, stroke, allergy/asthma, heart attack, overdose, etc. Training will also include an overview and discussion of the use of Naloxone(Narcan) for opioid overdoses.
“This training is not so much about putting a Bandaid on a boo-boo, but understanding what is happening to the person's body/systems in each of these situations; what signs and symptoms to look for; the recognition of situation and whether/how to initiate care while waiting for EMS; plus how to describe an event to 911 or EMS. With the addition of Stop the Bleed, participants will learn how to: 1) respond to serious bleeding; 2) recognize life threatening bleeding; and 3) control it while waiting for (professional) help to arrive.” – Craig Ramsey, Instructor
