Emergency medical training for police

This article describes an advanced 4-day training program for Seattle police officers already certified as EMTs. The training is “tailored for law enforcement officers who must first secure a violent scene before rendering aid, even amid the panic following an event like a mass shooting.” Nationally there is growing awareness that police need more than basic first aid and CPR training in order to save lives in the immediate aftermath of shootings — including the public and also their own life and those of other officers.
