First aid training
PORT ANGELES — Clallam County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently participated with Norpoint Medical for semi-annual hands-on truama-related first aid training.
During the August, deputies completed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator (AED) and first aid training.
This training was in line with recent department active shooter training and was tailored for rural deputies who typically have a much longer wait for medical response to a scene, according to a news release.
Training originated from deputy input and involved scenarios based on actual emergencies that deputies have encountered or might encounter in the course of their duties at scenes ranging from gunshot wounds to vehicle collisions, according to the release.
