One takeaway from the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas was that many lives were likely saved by concert attendees rendering first aid and transporting the wounded to hospitals.
In a chaotic situation, particularly involving an active shooter and multiple casualties, paramedic and ambulance response will be delayed until the scene is controlled. Law enforcement and Emergency medical agencies understand this, and are embracing the concepts of casualty collection points and force protection teams to protect medics and allow casualties to be moved out of the direct threat area.

This takes substantial time in a big casualty event. It may be a half hour or more before a victim will have a professional rescuer working on them.
The people on scene have to be their own first responders.
Solid basic first aid skills and the will to take action will pay huge dividends, but like all skills these must be ingrained and rehearsed to be reliable in a crisis.
Due to student inquiries about gunshot/trauma first aid training we are adding more tactical medicine classes to our schedule.
