Date(s) - 02/10/2018

Four Corners Rifle and Pistol Indoor Range

NOTE on this course:
The particular course is listed as private and by invitation only of the Four Corner Rifle & Pistol Club in Cortez, CO, mainly for FCPRC instructors, range officers, and members. This course will be a good portion of our Tac Med course and focusing mainly on instruction treating all aspect of patient survivability from GSW until professional medical support arrives on scene.
Thus, some of the topics listed below will not apply. We will be supplying all training items needed and advising on proper medical / IFAK selections.
When an emergency medical situation happens, are you prepared to save your own life or others?
If you live and work in modern America, an ambulance may be anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes away, possibly further. For those who go to or live outside established areas, whether in or outside the U.S., in-depth medical help may be hours or days away. Those minutes or hours count. Medically speaking, seconds count. Life can end quickly waiting for an ambulance or other treatment.
Can you handle major injuries until that professional treatment arrives? Do you too see the need to learn how to apply self-aid or medical aid to others who’s lives may depend on your ability to apply immediate aid? Is your life and the lives of those you love worth your time and effort to invest in a day of medical training that will last you for the rest of your life and may even save your life?
For those of you who attend, we look forward to meeting you heroes and helping you prepare for the unwanted and unexpected moments life sometimes gives. It is our sincere hope that these skill never be needed…but just in case, we are excited to pass on life-saving information and information to you so that others may live!
