Chris Van Houten, NREMT-P taught a one-day seminar covering principles of pre-hospital trauma life support. We learned how to recognize life threatening injuries and to correctly use potentially life saving medical items such as tourniquets and hemostatic agents. Turn out was great despite our scheduling the seminar for Super Bowl Sunday!
No class on December 25, 2012, and January 1, 2013. Class resumes on January 8, 2013.
L to R: Lem, Philip, Joe C., Ann, Chris R., Alex, Bethany, Bob S., Joe M., Tyus, Ryan, Mosi, David D. and Brian.
After class we headed to Tino’s for our annual gift exchange.
Coveted and not-so-coveted gifts included a framing hammer, a false teeth ice cube tray, a “learn to read” Brave storybook, partially disassembled tactical pen, an Atomic Robo trade paperback, a Ninja blender, used baseball bats, a knife disguised as lipstick, an armchair organizer, and Mace.
Too much rain, wind and flooding due to “Frankenstorm” Sandy.
Our class is moving to a new time and location!
Classes will continue to be held on Tuesday evenings but will run from 7:30 to 8:30.
Our new location is the Baltimore Fencing Center/New West Learning Center at 9180 D4 Rumsey Road, Columbia MD 21045.
See you at the new facility next week!
Congratulations to both Joe C. and Miguel for their promotion to associate instructor! Both have trained for many years and definitely earned the rank of guro.
Additional congratulations to David D. for his promotion to apprentice instructor!
It’s sort of like Daylight Savings Time, but not. Tuesday evening classes are shifting by half an hour.
Starting in June, class will run from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. See you there!
