The south side of Chicago has one of the highest homicide rates in the country

52.7 per 100,000 in the Greater Grand Crossing community area, as compared to 16.4 per 100,000 across Chicago as a whole and approximately 5 per 100,000 people across the nation. The rate of homicide in Chicago has decreased slightly in recent years; however, the number of shootings has increased. In 2014, there were approximately 2,500 shootings reported, a 13% increase from the previous year.

Our Course

Bystanders are present at between 60-97% of all trauma cases and are more likely to provide assistance and higher quality care when they have some first aid training. 

 Although first responder courses have been developed for military and medical professionals, none are available to the general public in Chicago that trains bystanders to help without requiring additional supplies.

A TFRC for the general public will give participants the confidence, knowledge, and skills they need to provide rapid and effective care to trauma victims.
