The Tourniquet (when and how to apply)

This is an article with some good info on when and how to use a tourniquet but for the squeamish there is a very graphic image. If that will bother you please skip reading the article. In an emergency or disaster scenario such as earthquake,hurricane or other similar scenarios help will not be available. Not police, firemen or medical help maybe for hours possibly for days so I do think folks should know how and when to use the tourniquet and Outdoor self reliance provides that info.
