JOINT COUNCIL 10 HOSTS SAFETY AND SECURITY TRAINING
More than 50 officers, agents and staff members from Joint Council 10 locals and providers gathered for a training in security and safety today.
The five-hour training was divided into three parts:
• Situational and observational awareness
• Responding to hostile intruders
• “Stop the Bleed”: How to respond to bleeding injuries
Retired Massachusetts State Patrol (MSP) Lieutenant Daniel Wells of the CATCH Corporation covered ideas and techniques for raising awareness in the office and throughout an individual’s day.
“If I can give you all just one second, one second where you identify a threat or a situation before something happens, then this training will be a success,” Wells said. “That one second you have in your pocket, gives you an opportunity to positively change the course of events.”
Retired MSP Lieutenant James O’Donnell covered appropriate responses to hostile intruders and situations. The “Stop the Bleed” training addressed what to do if someone is injured with hands-on instruction in stopping life-threatening bleeding situations.
Staff from Local 25, 59, 170, 191, 251, 340, 404, 493, 633, 671, 677 and Teamster-affiliated Allegiant Care, Local 251 Health Services, Local 170 Health and Welfare, the New England Federal Credit Union, New England Pension Fund and Local 25 TeamsterCare were in attendance.
