Cowboy Up! C.A.R.E.

In preparation for our season of spring branding, cattle drives, and veterans sessions we attended a course being put on by Horses For Heroes- NM Inc. Cowboy Up! called C.A.R.E. (Cowboy Assessment Response Evacuation). In a nutshell, it was Open Range First Aid training specially designed for us and was presented by our own Special Forces Trained, Senior Medic Neil "Doc" Riley, NREMT-P, Wilderness EMT.

We covered preventative medicine, injury assessment, CPR review, spoke about fractures, splinting, simple sprains & strains, concussions, dislocations, lacerations and punctures wounds, heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Thanks Neal for this wonderful, comprehensive class!

We'd also like to thank The Turquoise Trail Volunteer Fire Department for welcoming us and most of all, for the use of their facilities!

L to R: Cowboy Up! Graduate, Volunteer Instructor Chuck Franco, Director Rick Iannucci enjoy a little break and then some lunch!

Future Cowboy!!!
