shooter preparedness, survival mindset for the catastrophic event, and basic trauma medical intervention, which is covered under the Arizona Good Samaritan laws, according to a press release.

This training certified the team for the next 24 months, the release said, adding that members will be able to re-certify on basic trauma medical intervention.

“We are training professionals in the community how to change the outcome of a traumatic situation to one of preparedness,” Dan Greene of R.I.M. Training said in a prepared statement.

Dr. Debbi Burdick, CCUSD superintendent, invited R.I.M. Training to CCUSD since she experienced the training at another location.

“It is unfortunate that we live in a society where we now need this skillset,” she stated. “However, with the tips for survival and for saving lives that we were taught in the span of a morning, our leadership team feels much more empowered and prepared after this powerful training. I would highly recommend this for everyone.”
