  2. Certified Tactical Emergency Casualty Care - TECC (Afternoon):
    If an active shooter event occurs EMS is trained not to come until the scene is safe. While the EMT’s and paramedics stage waiting on the all clear from Law Enforcement, people are bleeding out and dying.

    The Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) course is designed to present a strong foundation of topics, concepts, principles, and skills specific to delivering emergency medical care for patients in a civilian tactical environment.

    With roots developed in evidence-based combat medicine, TECC presents the three phases of tactical casualty care and integrates nomenclature familiar to civilian, EMS, Fire, and Law Enforcement:

    TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards 
    approach to providing care in incidents such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event

    This 8-hour TECC provider course includes all-new tactical casualty incident simulations. TECC includes but is not limited to:

    The TECC course delivered by Alpha Defense Group and Mid-America Safety Services is certified by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, is consistent with the most current guidelines established by the Committee on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC), and meets all of the updated National Tactical Emergency Medical Support Competency Domains.
