This course will address the training and principle guidelines needed for Fire/EMS agencies when tasked with responding to an Active Shooter/Critical Incident Event and can serve as a template for agencies looking for a way to organize a structured response using the Rescue Task Force (RTF) concept that is being introduced at the national level.
This single-day course covers principles of tactical trauma medicine that have been successful in reducing the mortality rate of victims in these types of scenarios as well as how EMS can work jointly with law enforcement to bridge the gap in getting critical medical aid to victims.
The course outline follows the IAFF’s endorsement on Active Shooter Event response and comprises the elements of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) program, as well as principles from FEMA’s Basic Response to an Active Shooter, Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT), and Law Enforcement Active Shooter Response (LASER).
