The time to learn to use your personal trauma kit is not when you or someone else is bleeding out!!!

When life expectancy is measured in seconds and help is minutes away, will you know what to do? In our uncertain lives, that is a question that we all need to be able to answer a resounding, “Yes!” to.

Dark Angel Medical, LLC, is proud to offer training and instruction in the use of the D.A.R.K. The Tactical Aid Course fills a niche between military self-aid/buddy care training and civilian EMS training and is geared towards those with little to no medical training or background.
