Medical Training DFW July 14th


Post by Bitter Clinger » Tue Jun 19, 2018 7:20 pm

Caleb Causey (Lone Star Medics) has a course planned for July. Those of you that have studied under Caleb know what a great instructor he is and how jam packed with practical and hands-on knowledge his classes are...his next one is here in July, and since its too darn hot to spend the day outside anyway, I am planning to attend:

“Range Response”: 1-day, $150/student
If you are a firearms instructor, range officer, a match director, or just someone that spends their weekend out on the range; this course is for you!

This 8hr. course will prepare you and your range for emergency medical incidents. In class, students learn how to identify and treat common injuries/illnesses related to the shooting sports while out on the range. Everything from minor burns from hot brass, to gunshot wounds, to heat/cold related injuries, to foreign objects in the eyes, and other general medical emergencies will be covered. Not only will you learn what to do until the medics/ambulance arrives; but you’ll learn how to set up a plan of action specifically for your range. It doesn’t matter if your range is indoor, outdoor, in the city, or out in the country; we’ll teach you different options to take back to the range so you can create your own SOP’s and be prepared.

As with all LSM courses, students will learn through minimal lectures, plenty of hands-on skills practice and using scenario-based training; conduct a medical site survey as the final test in class. This class is equally balanced in both administrative and actual medical skills. We highly recommend taking our “Medic 1” course along with this class.
Some of the subjects covered in this course:
- Medical & Legal Issues
