Title: Possible "Stop the Bleed" Class in Nashville
Post by: Black Knight on June 19, 2021, 07:21:09 PM
I have contacted an instructor who would be willing to conduct a class in Nashville.  The minimum attendance is eight but can seat more than that.  The class would probably be scheduled about the July 30-Aug 1 timeframe so as not to conflict with any scheduled AS events.  Border raiders are welcome.  Please respond to this thread your interest in attending.  Your response is not binding; I am just trying to gauge interest in this valuable training.

Having attended one last year, I can heartily recommend it. Others in the class said that it was in a similar vein as a combat casualty course. The material was interesting and not draining at all. The class is fairly quick, and won't put a squeeze on your schedule.

Been keeping my ears to the ground and watching for any of these classes to pop up within acceptable travel range.
Would love to take one of these classes, and Nashville aint so far away. Gonna be in Idaho that weekend, though. Sigh.

The Stop the Bleed instructor has notified me today that the weekend of July 31 will not work.

What kind of interest is there for a Sept. 25th class date?

Hey Black Knight,

Looking at the calendar, there are two shoots on the weekend of 9/25; one in Memphis and one in Cleveland. I'd love for more of the TN cadre to be able attend without creating a conflict. Would your Stop The Bleed instructor have availability for an alternate weekend where there aren't any shoots scheduled?

Post by: Black Knight on June 24, 2021, 12:07:57 PM
That's what happens when you look at the AS event schedule with your eyes half closed. 

Based on the instructor's availability and AS event schedule, it looks like we will have to postpone scheduling the class until late spring.

Let me enthusiastically endorse this course.  Dangerous Cook and I took it about 2 years ago and  even though she is a nurse (RN) and I am a former EMT, we found it quite beneficial.  It is not hard but very valuable!

The STB instructor has formally put our class on the calendar for Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 10:00 am.  The class will run from one to two hours based on participant questions.  The class will probably be held at Skyline Hospital in Madison, TN.  More details and sign up will occur as we get closer to the date.  Please put this date on your calendar now.  Thank you for your responses and interest.

I'm interested, but don't have September schedule nailed down. My brother wants to do an AS in MO that weekend and Toby wants to do KD that weekend. Hmmm. This is probably more important.

Happydad, the current date for this is set at Oct. 16. My assumption is that when it gets close we will hear more definitive details….

When you arrive at the hospital you will park at the front of the hospital and walk in the main entrance. Once you’ve gone through security, you will either turn right and go down the stairs to the lower floor, or keep going straight and take the elevators. Auditorium A&B will be on the other side of the cafeteria. There is will a big sign outside that says Stop The Bleed.   

SEE YOU THERE!!!

And the "Possible" actually happened.  Six AS Instructors (one Blue hat) and two guests attended a Stop the Bleed class at Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, TN, on October 16, 2021.  Instruction was followed by practical exercises to fix in mind the techniques presented.  This instruction added a very valuable skill set to the instructors' repertoire.  All were very glad that they attended the class and highly recommended this it to other AS Instructors.
