A member here asked me what they could do to help in response to all of the craziness at play these days. I offer the following: Get a trauma kit and learn how to use it. The very basics are a tourniquet (either a CAT or Soft-T wide), a pressure bandage, and a chest seal. There are numerous places to order them online. I strongly encourage you to buy directly from an actual medical supplier such as Tactical Medical Solutions, North American Rescue, etc. Unfortunately, counterfeiting is running rampant, and some low quality counterfeits have made their way to places like Amazon. There have been numerous reports of the counterfeits breaking when used. The actual medical suppliers get their products directly from the manufacturer. Do not use your actual carry tourniquet for training/practice. Typically, the line of thought is that a person carries a kit for their own personal use. Even in a team environment, if dude-A gets hit, dude-B uses dude-A's kit to treat dude-A. Being able to quickly treat your own wounds is actually extremely helpful in such an incident as resources are easily overwhelmed, and if you have solved part of the problem, you have helped. If you aren't hit, you could help treat someone else. As for engaging the bad guy(s), let your conscience be your guide. Getting your loved ones out of harms way is helpful. If you decide to engage, remember, other parties might not know that you are a good guy.
