Deputies Receive Additional Medical Training

DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies have finished up a multi-day training event thanks to our local DeSoto EMS.  The Sheriff’s Office said, “This is the first time our deputies have had access to an open “Wound Simulator” which allows training on packing, as well as stopping bleeds on lacerations and gunshot wounds.”

All in attendance were able to refresh their skills and certifications in CPR, AED, First Aid, among various other lifesaving procedures.  Deputies from various divisions including front office staff participated in the training. 

This was an in-depth, hands-on approach that allowed deputies to react in real time to realistic emergency situations.  We cannot overstate our thanks to DeSoto EMS for inviting our staff to take part in this training and hosting the event at their facility.
