0275 - The App That MUST be on your Smart Phone

/
I have a good number of apps that I use on my phone and I must say I have become a bit of an app snob. Today we talk about the Pocket First Aid and CPR App from the American Heart Assoc. It is a good app. Check it out.

0251 - Make Note of AED Locations

/
I can't speak for anyone else and thier life experiences, but without a doubt I have used my life saving skills more often and with greater consequence than my life taking skills. Just like our tactical training, we need to make sure that our medical training is up to date. AED's are becoming more and more common every day and they are life saving tools. it is estimated that 50% of people that die from cardiac arrest could be saved with a speedy application of an AED. Check out today's show to find out about what you need to know.

0102 - Got a Blow Out Kit Yet?

/
I am a huge fan of First Aid Gear. When people ask me why I carry a gun I explain to them that because despite the efficiency of the 911 system and the professionalism of our law enforcement officers, a police response is most likely 3 or minutes away if I am involved in a violent encounter. That is assuming I can get to my phone to call immediately. Again as efficient as that is, it is probably about 2 minutes 50 seconds too late. In that 3 minutes I have the ability to save my own life, or the lives of others. Now this answer is a very well thought out logical answer based on why any firefighter or paramedic would tell you to get trained in first aid. There is a gap in time between when you call for help and when help actually arrives and in that time if you are trained in first aid you can give life saving aid.
