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:

  • Hemorrhage control;
  • 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.
