After a year of lost training due to Covid shutdowns, it’s time to get back to picking up new skills or brushing up on old ones.
The month of September is full of live training! Learning about trauma techniques from the internet is better than nothing, but it doesn’t beat in-person training – Ask questions and practice procedures, so you can confidently save a life when it matters most.
Shortly after high school, I took my wife’s family out for a short summer camping trip to one of Colorado’s national forests.
It was just me, an overconfident 19-year-old, my future wife and her younger siblings spending a few nights under the stars. I showed them what I knew about building fires and throwing knives, but after a while we got bored and decided to head out for a hike.
While we strolled along in the back, her siblings ran on ahead and I lost sight of them for a short time.
