Accidents Happen: Learn Lifesaving Interventions

Accidents happen. Ordinary people with little medical training may find themselves in situations in which someone has suffered a traumatic injury, in a rural or austere environment where resources may be miles away.

Training topics

This course is designed to provide people with no medical background,specifically farmers and family members, with the basic lifesaving skills necessary to treat an injured family member or coworker until help arrives. First responders may also take the course.

The four-hour course teaches students how to stop massive bleeding; deal with breathing problems; treat burns, broken bones, eye injuries, chemical injuries, and hypothermia; and what treatment options are available for someone trapped in a machine, grain bin, or manure pit.

Topics include:

  • Massive Bleeding (lecture and hands on skill station)
  • Airway and Choking (lecture and hands on skill station)
  • Respiration and breathing problems
  • Circulation (lecture and hands on skill station)
  • Head to Toe Assessment & Hypothermia (lecture and hands on skill station)
  • Pain Management for Burns and Injuries

The course is offered at the Calamityville training facility in Fairborn, home to the National Center for Medical Readiness.

This event meets the requirements for workers comp safety training for Ohio Farm Bureau members.
