The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care define First Care Providers as; Empowered and trained community members can serve a critical role as First Care Providers during the initial moments after complex and dynamic disasters.
These everyday people often have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time sensitive, life saving interventions; First Care Providers are the first link in the Trauma Chain of Survival.
The reality is that sometimes Professional First Responders can't get there soon enough. First Care Providers are the first Civilians to brave danger and selflessly provide medical care.
First Care Provider Australia provides FREE Trauma Response Training.
Our Mission is to prepare and provide everyday Australians, with the skills and
confidence to be Citizen Hero's.
The First Care Provider Course has been developed in the United States as part of the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Initiative,
and is delivered under agreement from the First Care Provider Foundation America
through SureFire Tactical Pty Ltd as First Care Provider Australia.
Inspired by the American First Care Provider Foundation it is our Vision to provide a Community Safety initiative that will ultimately build our own grassroots Army of Citizen Hero's, ready willing and able to stand up and step in whenever or wherever the need arises.
News feeds are filled with horrifying events, active shooters, terrorist attacks,
What's often lost in these painful tragedies is the heroic efforts of everyday people, answering the call and coming to the aid of their fellow man.
Our hope is that these stories inspire people to learn to Stop the Bleed and to become certified First CARE Providers.
Join us as we discuss our plans to change the world and make our communities safer by teaching everyone how to address the preventable causes of traumatic death.
Come listen to inspiring stories, and hear how first responders & veterans
got together to create a program to empower citizens.
