JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

It's the kind of training we hope we never have to use. 

Dr. Spencer Guinn, members of the Jonesboro Police Department and Emerson Ambulance took some of the KAIT staff through community first responder training Friday afternoon.  

It’s a class that provides medical training to law enforcement and civilians.

In the hour-long class, Dr. Guinn taught and demonstrated how to properly apply a tourniquet and pack a wound.  

Dr. Guinn emphasized in an emergency there isn't always time to wait for an ambulance and professional first responders.  

Sometimes ordinary citizens can be the difference between life and death.  

If your group would like to take this class, you can visit the group’s website here or contact Dr. Spencer Guinn at stopthebleedingfoundation@gmail.com.
