On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Sam Fordyce Elementary teachers and staff received some valuable information during their Inservice Training. The first training was the “Stop the Bleed” which is a one hour course offered by South Texas Health Systems. This course offered the skills and basic tools needed to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation. Teachers and staff practiced packing a wound and applying a tourniquet. Teachers and staff also received training from Hidalgo County Senior Deputy and Lead Instructor, Rick Garcia on “Surviving an Active Shooter”. Sr. Deputy Garcia discussed safety and security measures needed to be safe in a crisis situation.
