Shooting ranges are increasing in popularity, it is a lucrative business when created in accordance with basic requirements. This article takes a detailed look at the medical kits when planning a shooting range business.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) for Safety
When planning a shooting range business, you need to undergo TCCC training for safety. Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) are guidelines set by the United States military for prehospital combat medicine trauma life support to reduce preventable death while maintaining the operation's success.
The TCCC is developed by the Department of Defense Health Agency Joint Trauma System (DHA-JTS) to teach evidence-based, life-saving strategies and techniques for giving the best trauma care on the battlefield.
The three objectives of the TCCC are
To treat combatants that are injured.
To limit further casualty risks.
To achieve the success of the mission.
The DHA-JTS specifies the TCCC courses while the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) conducts the courses with the help and support of its PHTLS program, the prehospital trauma education's recognized world leader.
The medical kits to be included are the Boo Boo kit and the Gunshot Wound Kit.
Boo Boo Kit
The boo boo kit is a small compact first aid kit that is suitable for handling minor injuries. Not every injury will require a trauma kit.
Some of the content of your boo boo kit should include nitrile gloves, aspirin, scissors, duct tape, burn cream, antacids, tweezers, safety pins, a digital thermometer, etc. Having the boo boo kit at the range is perfect for situations such as the shooter's fingers peeling.
Gunshot Wound Kit
You would see that most shooting ranges are guns, and having a gunshot wound kit is also very important. If there is a gunshot wound, a gunshot wound kit will be perfect for treating the traumatic emergency before the arrival of proper medical attention.
It can be used to lessen blood loss during or after a shooting before proper treatment is given. Some of the content of your gunshot wound kit should include a tourniquet, chest seals, pressure dressing, trauma shears, decompression needle, etc.
The medical kit can be attached to the belt.
When planning your shooting range business, be sure to undergo the TCCC training for safety and have your medical kit as it is more important than thought to be.
