LVRS held a drill on Tuesday April 2 designed to address trauma skills. Addressed skills were rapid trauma assessments, stretcher troubleshooting, securing patients of all ages and splinting. Trainers designed the sections by encouraging hands-on experience to learn skills that may be occasionally used, and important to practice for real-life circumstances. Members were divided into groups, which visited each training station and engaged in mastering the skill presented. This is the third such training station drill presented. During the practice of skills in these training sessions, challenges have surfaced, which allowed trainers and participants to solve these problems in preparation for real-life situations. Many thanks to our brothers and sisters, Carole, Greg, Lisa, Amy, Jake and Doug for their preparation and hard work. Photo credits to Danielle Sullivan and Tyler Fitzgerald.
