Civilian Response and Casualty Care (CRCC) Train-the-Trainer

First Responder agencies are frequently requested by schools, businesses, and community members for direction and presentations on what they should do if confronted with an active attacker event. The Civilian Response and Casualty Care (CRCC) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. This course combines the civilian response with the Stop the Bleed Campaign, which empowers civilians to provide life-saving medical aid before first responders ever arrive. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills. Participants in this two day Train-the-Trainer course will receive a manual and PowerPoint presentation suitable for use in their own presentations.

Class Size: 20

Length: 8 hours (One day compressed class)

Room: Cheekwood B

Medical Advanced Skills Course (MASC)

The Medical Advanced Skills Course is designed for those participants that are allowed to perform invasive techniques on injured individuals. The skills learned are based on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Standards and best practices. The course does not certify you to  perform the techniques, merely to introduce you to new concepts and then seek your own medical directors guidance and approval. 

Topics include pre-hospital damage control resuscitation, compressible and non-compressible bleeding management, hypotensive resuscitation, hemostatic resuscitation, airway management, tension pneumothorax management and hypothermia prevention and management. 

ALERRT Conference attendees will participate in a 4 hour introduction of MASC and participate in the following hands on skills: surgical cricothyrotomy, finger thoracostomy, needle thoracostomy, vented chest seal application, extremity and junctional tourniquet application, hemostatic wound packing, extraglotic and nasopharyngeal airways Insertion, intraosseous needle insertion with EZIO, EZIO sternal, and FAST1 sternal IO trainers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a whole blood transfer exercise.

Those who attend either class will get to attend Dr. Ethan Miles' Whole Blood course. He is the Ranger Physician that developed their ROLO program allowing whole blood field transfusions in the field and in hospitals. This is an emerging topic in Civilian Pre-Hospital Care and has been adopted by several agencies across the US already.

Class Size: 15

Length: 4 hours

Options: AM or PM

Room: Cheekwood C
