Lab Week 4 – First Aid
This week, Seneca Battalion conducted first aid training as part of its weekly lab.
Cadets rotated through three stations taught by MS III instructors, each covering a different part of dealing with casualties on the battlefield. The stations included events like Tactical Combat Casualty Care, where cadets learned how to treat wounds such as burns, gunshots, broken bones, and lacerations; casualty evacuation and calling in medical evacuation aircraft (MEDEVAC); and carrying techniques to remove the casualty from the line of fire.
Cadets spent roughly twenty minutes at each station and performed an exercise at the end where they had to apply everything they’d learned, including assessing the casualty, treating them, and calling for MEDEVAC.
The intent for this lab was for cadets to gain a basic understanding of first aid that can be applied both in the military and civilian career paths.
