Go to an EMS station and ask. They will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Great, I will look into them. I am far behind in this subject and frankly it is one that has me a tad worried about what to do if something major happens.
Thanks for the info...
As far as 1st Aid Class near you... Talk to your local fire department. They can point you in the right direction...

I have been freaking dying to go take a TCCC course with ol girl. I want to carry a dart, but I refuse without the training.

Would CERT be the starting point folks would recommend?
Yes. I am a CERT member and also the training director for my team. It is very beneficial training. We have expanded on the basic training with CPR/AED and Stop The Bleed classes.

My EMT-B license expired 2 years ago. I didn't renew it because I'm not required to have one since I retired. I stilll possess the knowledge and that won't change. Last weekend (9-26-20) I took a TCCC Class (Stop the Bleed), because use of tourniquet, use of clotting agents, and use of decompression needle was not part of the EMT-B class criteria.
Additionally, I found a footlocker full of medical equipment, bandages, and OTC Meds at a garage sale yesterday for $ 25.00... It was well worth more than what I paid for it all. In particular, there was a Littman Cardiac stethoscope in the collection. I had bought my ex-wife one of these for $ 179.00, 13 years ago, when she took her EMT-Paramedic course. Also included were multiple pressure bandages both with and without Celox/KwikClot, SAM Splints, otoscope, Pulseoximeter, shears (7pr), 6 boxes of (black) Exam Gloves, 3 huge bags of Kerlix (25 rolls/bag), and enough suture kits to build a DYI Frankenstein... Plus there are other items (too many to list)... This footlocker (Contico 32"x16"x16") was literally full to the top. I'd have to estimate approximately $750.00 +/- worth. I even asked the lady if she had any more medical stuff she wanted to get rid of..LOL..
Note: The footlocker itself sells for around $ 25.00...
