    A corspman at the squad level

    100% agree with the lack of resource. There’s not enough line medics on the army side at least for it. On per platoon with well trained cls person per squad is how my old unit ran it. The medical section not on the line back at HHC ran the aid station and ambulance.

    The right words

    This is huge. Had a family member arrest a while back and when we went to the house a few hours later there were sharps, lots of used gloves, wrappers from airways/aed pads/ etc around. No excuse not to pick up after yourself if the pt is pronounced on scene.
