The 407th Civil Affairs Battalion Functional Specialty team taught a combat first aid class June 25, 2014, at the World Health Organization Country office in Djibouti.

The soldiers taught Tactical Combat Casualty Care which is often proven by the U.S. military, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care in the field.

Representatives from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, WHO and United Nations Children's Fund where all in attendance.

“In light of the recent attack in Djibouti and the need for trained first responders, WHO and UNICEF requested us to come out and teach this training,” said U.S. Army Lt. Col. Joshua Hawley-Molley, 407th CA BN FxSP physician.
The students were taught how to handle severe hemorrhaging, collapsed lungs and obstructed airways. These are the three most preventable causes of deaths in the field, Hawley-Molloy said.

“I learned a lot,” said Dorani Salah, UNHCR senior administrative assistant. “I will be able to apply this to my job.”
Participants practiced carries, applying tourniquets, controlling bleeding and establishing a triage.

“The more trained first responders we have who can rapidly treat people before they reach a hospital, the more lives that can be saved,” Hawley-Molloy said.

The 407th CA BN falls under the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa and by teaching these courses, they fulfill the Task Force’s mission of building relationships.
