272Fw: Re:Scenario One
- Jan 9, 2009
These answers were sent to me privately with permission to post to the list.
- 1. What kind of things should you be thinking about at this point?
- I would expect anything but think of the possible injuries from a string or bow breaking
- 2. What do you think should be in your basic first aid kit?
- My kit contains bandages from band aids to shell dressings, gloves, masks, blankets and anything else I thought I might need (even 3 two-way radios)
- 3. As you get closer to the scene, what should you be looking for?
- After being told about the hole, I would be looking for it (how big/how deep) so I can tell the autocrat and ask someone to fill it in, and so I don't step in it myself.
- 4. Once you are at the casualty, what's the first thing you should assess? How would you do that?
- A - talking
- B - talking
- C - no blood in evidence but will check foot for colour and
temperature during exam
- Person is awake and aware. Watch for signs of shock.
- Check and ask about any fall injuries (wrist, hand, knees)
- 5. What do you believe has happened to the casualty? How would you determine that?
- Possible twisted ankle. Check range of motion, check for hot areas,
- If anything appears more serious have person see a doctor asap, if not, have person see doctor as soon as convenient.
- 6. What kind of treatment would you give?
- Move into shade, make as comfortable as possible, use cold pack.
- Check back, if anything worsens (pain, movement, colour) have person
see doctor asap.
- Not asked for:
- Inform Autocrat, fill out paperwork and pass to you (if you are
there, call if you are not),
- follow up with e-mail w/attached forms when possible. Check back to
make sure if hole is filled.
- I agree with the principle of "No Surprises", and a paper
