Tactical Medical Response


If you haven’t already, it’s inevitable you’ll respond to a call with a severally wounded individual. With backup and support aid an unpredictable distance away, time matters. By carrying essential medical equipment, knowing what it is, and how to use it, you can completely change the outcome of the call. You don’t have to be a paramedic, but you can be prepared to save a life- maybe even your own.
