50 mass shooting incidents occurred in 2016-2017 in 21 states resulting in 221 casualties and 743 injuries (FBI 2018). Bystanders are first on the scene of incidents, making training civilians necessary to decrease morbidity and mortality from hemorrhagic injuries (“Stop the Bleed” 2018). Amongst the mass casualty incidents from 2000-2013, 24% occurred in public schools (FBI 2014). The purpose of our project is to measure the efficacy of adding a high fidelity simulation to a ACS B-Con Course. Secondary objectives: (a) evaluate the efficacy of retention of skills over a period of time; and (b) evaluate the change in length of time to tourniquet placement with the addition of a stressful simulated scenario.
