Surviving Traumatic Incidents

Course Description:  This course is a one-day lecture on Surviving Traumatic Incidents.  This lecture is designed for all officers, regardless of rank or assignment, and focuses on surviving traumatic incidents based on the presenters’ own personal stories of survival.  The presenters were critically injured in the line-of-duty, and provide personal and valuable insight on how they each survived this incident.  The lecture will discuss issues related to how an on-duty traumatic incident can involve an officer’s personal life, family, and Department.  The lecture will also address the need to develop a survival mindset, post incident action plans, and the issues associated with recovering both mentally and physical from these types of incidents.  This lecture allows the students to understand and define the "victim" as well as the stages of grieving and the "fight or flight" response.  They learn how to approach an injury from a logical standpoint NOT an emotional perspective.  Students will be able to adhere to the will to survive.
