Citizen Protection Group offers training for crisis scenarios

BANGOR/ELLSWORTH Citizen Protection Group is offering a public training to give citizens basic skills in first aid to increase their chances of dealing with injuries that can occur in self-defense incidents. The class is being held May 31 in Ellsworth at CrossFit Acadia, 249 Bucksport Road, from 10 to 11 a.m. and another at 11 to 12 noon. Then in Bangor at Cambell's ATA Black Belt Academy, 33 School Street, Suite 3, from 2 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m.

'One of the missing elements to most personal protection trainings is that of first aid,' said Greg Mitchell, founder of Citizen Protection Group. 'Unfortunately, many confrontations result in some sort of injury and occasionally, critical injuries occur. The Citizen Protection Group will provide citizens with simple and effective basic first aid skills to help citizens survive until an ambulance can arrive.'

The guest instructor for this class is Miles Carpenter, an Advanced EMT/SWAT Medic and a law enforcement officer in Maine. He began his medical training in 1988 and served as a Marine for 13 years, before returning to Maine to serve in law enforcement.

Carpenter will present an hour long interactive lecture on critical care first aid, covering personal safety, equipment considerations, bleeding control, airway management, shock, recovery positions and steps that need to be taken after an incident.

Tuition for the class is $25 for non-members and $20 for members of Citizen Protection Group.
