ROTC/JROTC Combat Lifesaver Training
The University of Michigan Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) off-campus programs at Wayne State University and University of Michigan – Dearborn hosted the Cass Tech High School JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) cadets at Wayne State on Tuesday, Dec. 11 for lessons in basic combat lifesaver training, such as splinting fractures, identifying/treating heat and cold injuries and controlling bleeding.
The training is the result of a partnership between the two groups that is intended to provide positive role models and mentors to the JROTC cadets. The goal is to help the JROTC cadets focus on school and graduate so they can continue their education in college. The program is designed to provide non-combat specific training to the JROTC cadets for motivation while developing mentor/mentee relationships between the senior ROTC cadets and the Junior ROTC cadets.
