EFD Receives Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Training from Deaconess



On Tuesday, March 19th, Deaconess and Air Evac will conduct a Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support education session for the Evansville Fire Department at the EFD Headquarters.

This Trauma First Response course is a one-day continuing education course that teaches the principles of Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) to first responders, police officers, firefighters, rescue personnel, and safety officers. It helps them prepare to care for trauma patients at the scene while serving as part of a transport team or awaiting a transport provider such as an ambulance or Air Evac helicopter.

MEDIA should join us from 12:10 to 1:10 when firefighters will practice skills in airway and breathing, bleeding control, spinal immobilization and rapid extrication.
