SCOOP: DHS to train high schoolers in "proper bleeding control techniques" in preparation for "mass casualty events," federal docs I found show. “Similar to how students learn health education and driver’s ed, they must learn proper bleeding control."

It is a good skill to have and while the reasons for teaching it now are abhorrent, I am pleased it is being taught. We have a deplorable level of first aid training in this country, Every high school aged kid should be taught the equivalent of first responder medical care.

I recently had to attend an active shooter seminar where an entire section was devoted to "envisioning a positive outcome" during the event. Apparently, happy thoughts can stop bullets. It's beyond ridiculous.

Well, yeah. “Thoughts and prayers” are better than actual actions after a shooting, so applied proactively DURING a shooting they must work even better

Are they teaching “proper obliterated internal organ and brain replacement techniques”?

Right? An AR is designed to blow bones apart and blow blood vessels to pieces. Hardly survivable. Because it’s a weapon of war.

You know you live in a normal country when people get up in arms about teaching kids how is babby formed and how to not get STDs/knocked up but are cool with teaching them how to apply a tourniquet for when the weird kid comes to school with an AR and shoots up class.

Dont know why first aid training isn't a part of school curriculums in the first place. Beyond the inference of necessity due to school shootings, it saves lives everywhere & lays fundamental education needed for our future doctors

I agree. Teach CPR, too. This is beyond first aid though. Stop the Bleed () is about severe injuries and how to help (applying pressure, packing wounds, using tourniquet, etc.). Context of active shooter was disturbing.

Sure, but this is different. Basic first aid helps with that kind of emergency. This training is for mass shootings.
