About the Event
This class will earn 8 CEU's
The Tactical Medic Course is a systematic approach to dealing with casualties in a tactical environment. It is strongly influenced by the model used by the Department of Defense called Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). As the name implies, TCCC incorporates tactical problem solving into any situation in which casualties are incurred from an armed, hostile opponent. The TCCC system focuses on saving “preventable deaths” while achieving three primary goals: Treat the Casualty, Prevent Additional Casualties, and Continue the Mission. The law enforcement officer will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to mitigate the loss of their life or the life of another while in an active threat environment. The skills will address treating life-threatening injuries in an austere environment with limited equipment, lack of medically trained personnel, and prolonged time to evacuate. During the course, students will demonstrate lifting, moving, and extricating victims from a tactical or hostile environment during Tactical Evacuation Care.
