Logging can be a dangerous profession and accidents can happen. As an EMT I see a number of injuries, most of which are not life treating. But on occasion we come across a serious injury that needs immediate attention to prevent loss of limb or even death. You can make a difference by being prepared and helping before EMS arrives. All loggers should have the offers first aid kit. In addition the TAC PAC plot is also important for the really serious injury. The TAC PAC contains a tourniquet and materials for packing the wound to stop bleeding. By the time EMS arrives the person (your friend) may have lost to much blood..Be prepared.
