Colleton County Fire-Rescue


16-17/January/2020 – Active Shooter & Bleeding Control Training             

Fire-Rescue personnel conducted Active Shooter and Bleeding Control Training Sessions for all County Employees during four sessions held at Council Chambers Thursday and Friday 16 & 17 January. The training aims to educate the employees on survival techniques and how to react during an active shooter incident. The class also teaches the employees, who may be the first people on the scene, how to properly manage bleeding injuries to possibly save the life of a victim. Bleeding Control Kits have been placed in designated areas of many County Buildings. It is hoped that the training and kits will never be needed, but County Staffers are now better prepared should they encounter such a situation.
