Training begins for police officers to control bleeding of mass-casualty victims in the US
Date:2/27/2014

CHICAGO (February 27, 2014) For almost a year now, surgeons and first responder organizations have been working to increase the number of survivors of an active shooter or mass casualty incident. An important part of this initiative requires all law enforcement officers to get medical training and equipment to control bleeding, a goal set forth by the Hartford Consensus, a collaborative group of trauma surgeons, federal law enforcement, and emergency responders, and driven by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Major Cities Chiefs Association and Prehospital Trauma Life Support program.

The principle of more training and equipment is central to the findings of the Hartford Consensus, according to an article entitled, "The Hartford Consensus: THREAT, A Medical Disaster Preparedness Concept," published in the March issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS). A companion piece to the article also published in the March issue ("Joint Committee to Create a National Policy to Enhance Survivability from Mass Casualty Shooting Events: Hartford Consensus II"), calls for a broad educational strategy and a robust evaluation of the implementation of THREAT in order to quantify its benefits in the management of active shooter and mass casualty events.

THREAT is an acronym for the needed response to mass shooting events developed by the Hartford Consensus: T - Threat suppression, H Hemorrhage control, RE Rapid Extrication to safety, A Assessment by medical providers, and T Transport to definitive care. The Hartford Consensus is led by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma and builds on guidelines developed by the U.S. military to advance battlefield trauma care.

Driving the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus is the fact that in active shooter or mass casualty events, victims all too often bleed to death before medically trained emergency
