The Nashua Police Department is pleased to announce the following new initiative and training opportunity for citizens:
“Civilian Response to Active Shooter and Emergency Casualty Care”
The Nashua Police Department will now be hosting this class on a monthly or periodic basis. The first offering of this class will be on the following date/time:
Date: Thursday, 2/18/16
Time: 6:00PM -10:00PM
Location: Nashua Police Department (Classroom) 0 Panther Drive, Nashua, NH
As part of the classroom presentation on “Civilian Response to Active Shooter,” attendees will learn about proven options and strategies that can be employed in an active shooter/active threat situation to increase survivability during the timeframe that exists between when an active shooter situation starts and when the police arrive.
During the “Emergency Casualty Care” portion of the training, attendees will receive classroom and hands-on instruction in specific bleeding control techniques which have proven to be effective during active shooter/active threat situations. The topics of tourniquets, pressure bandages, chest seals and other emergency casualty care treatments will be covered.
Due to class size limitations and instructor-to-student ratio considerations, this class is only open to Nashua residents or citizens who work in Nashua at this time.
