Tactical Emergency Casualty Care
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment. It is designed to decrease preventable deaths in a tactical situation. The course presents the three phases of tactical care:
Direct Threat Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
Indirect Threat Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.
Evacuation Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.
The 16-hour classroom course covers the following topics:
Surgical airway control and needle decompression;
Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments;
Caring for pediatric patients; and
Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.
Live action scenarios
This class is presented in partnership with the Department of Defense Stop the Bleed Campaign and The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care.
Shock, Hemorrhage, Operational Tactics
Many civilians have expressed interest in taking a bleeding control training course that would empower them to immediately assist victims of active shooter and other intentional mass casualty events at the point of wounding, according to results of a new national poll published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Furthermore, the vast majority of civilians support training and equipping police officers to perform severe bleeding control on victims as soon as possible rather than wait for emergency medical services (EMS) personnel to arrive on the scene. There’s also strong public support for putting bleeding control kits in public places where large crowds gather, similar to the way that automatic external defibrillators are now found in airports and shopping malls for use by responders who have undergone cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.
This class is structured as either a four or eight hour class, depending on your needs.
Active Shooter Prepareness Training
The Active Shooter Prepareness Program was implemented in 2017 through the realization that encounters with a violent incident in the workplace, school facility, religious facility, or open venues were occurring at an increasingly alarming rate. Through these incidents, leadership and facilities has evolved to new tactics and procedures on how to better mitigate these situations by implementing “Lockdown” procedures. As we have evolved, so has the threat. We can no longer rely on “Lockdown” alone, there is so much more that can be done.
With emphasis being placed on training and preparation for an Active Shooter Event (ASE), M.A.S.S. focused on developing an all-encompassing program that gives workplace management, school resource officers, school faculty, and religious leadership the tools necessary to increase their chances of survivability when such violent incident were to occur.
Active Shooter Training Philosophy:
To better address the evolution of tactics and procedures in an ASE, M.A.S.S. developed a program called BECON:
Barricade: Utilize whatever you have available within the room to construct an effective barricade.
Egress (Evacuate): Just like a standard fire drill, you get OUT of the building.
Control: If you are a Manager, Teacher, Supervisor be the “Leader”. Take charge of the situation.
Oppose: You may have to become the attacker to stop the Active Shooter from killing you or others.
Notify: Put out information as quickly as possible.
Through the implementation of a set of non-sequential strategies, we learn the differences between being proactive vs. passive, thus instilling that survival mindset, and gaining the much-needed confidence to make a decision and act upon on it. We do this in a way that is practical, realistic, and applicable in its simplest form. We provide a common sense response to a not so common sense situation.
MANY CLASSES TO COME!
