This year Craig signed up to coach Ed’s soccer team. Previously he’s been assistant coach, but this year they were short on volunteers. So part of his “training” is doing an online course in safety and procedures and such.
And generally the training is reasonable and helpful and pretty much what you’d expect. Except when you get to this instructions for what to do… well, I’m not sure when you’d need to use a tourniquet at a 7 year old’s soccer game, but just in case, now we know.
Step Four: Tourniquet should be used if the other methods fail. Place the tourniquet between the heart and the wound, as close to the wound as possible, and tighten until the bleeding stops. Attach a note to the victim with the date, time and location of tourniquet. Cover victim to prevent shock.
And that’s it. Attach a note and then what?
Step Five: take victim to hospital? Notify parents? Give player a red card? Resume play?
Victim? Was this mistakenly copied from some bionuclear fallout radiation training plan? Because this shit is scary!
Man. This is going to be one hell of a season.
