While we strive to be as safe as humanly possible an accident can happen. even if it is a non GSW accident. turned ankles severe cuts ect. But in the event of a GSW what measures are in place to to handle the situation. I have only attend two local matches but at neither of these matches was an EMR plan presented. Who is designated as first responders? who has a trauma kit with pressure bandages and required tools needed to provide first aid for a GSW while awaiting EMS?
If this is something that has not been discussed I think it should be. I am sure it is my back ground in nursing and working in trauma centers during my clinical rotations but it would seem to me if this has not been addressed it needs to be.
For our local clubs I would be happy to draw up a response plan for our local matches. I can assure you, as we have had to call ems several times to Port Bienville and at rattle snake hills in pville the response times have been over 30 min in just about every case.
I have several close friends with the Ms highway patrol and Hancock county SO that can be alerted and be near by during our matches in pearlington ect...
I just ordered the Practical Trauma kit to go in the gun bag. Mat, maybe next I see you, you can walk me through its contents? Or is everything I need to know in the police car backseat scene from the movie "shooter"? j/k
