1. We review care under fire, simplifying training to SHOOT MOVE TOURNIQUET.
2. Preparing for the worst for a training mishap. They happen all the time and can be catastrophic. Mitigate risk by having the whole team put all phone numbers for home station and TDYs in their phones. Closest emergency room, level 1 trauma center, life flight and ambulance if appropriate, and dive chambers.
