The morning was in two parts. First, an incredible, and sadly relevant, class in surviving a mass casualty attack taught by Sgt. Spencer Fomby, leader of Berkeley Police Department’s national award-winning Immediate Action Rapid Deployment Team (informally known as SWAT). Then a review of Stop The Bleed, Controlling Life-Threatening Bleeding With Tourniquets and Pressure Bandages, taught by Berkeley CERT’s own Shawn Connors, Bill Springer, Barber Morita and Carrie Dovzak.
You missed it? Oh No!!!
