The National Association of EMT's ("NAEMT") Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) Course teaches EMS practitioners, pre-hospital providers, and other medical professionals who may be part of a team responding to an active shooter incident, how to care for patients in a civilian tactical environment with the goal of decreasing potentially preventable deaths in a tactical situation.
THIS COURSE IS DIRECTED AT BOTH LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FIRE SERVICE PERSONNEL. CONTACT BETH CIOLINO AT firstname.lastname@example.org FOR MORE INFORMATION.
The course focuses on the three phases of tactical care:
•Direct Threat Care that is rendered while in adverse conditions.
•Indirect Threat Care that is rendered when 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 •Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety
