Medical emergencies are among the most constant and critical threats executive protection professionals are likely to encounter. This training focuses on recognition and appropriate treatment of life-threatening trauma—whether sustained during an attack, a motor vehicle accident, or any number of other possible scenarios. Participants will learn vital skills for saving lives during the critical minutes before EMS can reach or safely enter the scene.


This training focuses on recognition of life-threatening injuries and application of appropriate treatments to dramatically increase survivability until the patient reaches higher-level care.
