Training 11/4/08

Senario Training is always a good way to help our guys see what would happen and what they would have to do in a real life situation. This particular training, we decided to supply "blood" so our members would have to actually control it and see how it is when an injury continues to bleed. We used IV bags and food coloring to supply the blood and it turned out to be a very good learning experience for them. They got a lot out of it and we were impressed with their thinking on the spot skills. Hope you enjoy the pics!
