Gunsite Academy can prepare you for an unexpected medical emergency.

Knowing your self-defense and firearms skills are important in emergencies, but don’t leave your arsenal of medical skills incomplete. Gunsite Academy’s 2016 Emergency Medical Preparedness course is now open for registration and will be offered from March 28 to 30.

In recent news coverage of natural disasters, riots and active shooters, it’s clear that medical preparedness is a something worth investing in. The Emergency Medical Preparedness course will be three days of learning from professionals who have been immersed in real world emergencies.

Classroom presentations and hands-on practice exercises will lead up to the challenging and fast-paced scenarios to prep you for the real thing.
