Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) for Law Enforcement Train the Trainer
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care is best-practice and evidence-based medical guidelines for the provision of care during high-threat incidents. This course is designed to teach law enforcement personnel about the differences between responding to and dealing with an isolated incident versus a high-threat situation involving casualties. It will also teach and reinforce basic life-saving TECC skills for law enforcement personnel that may be applied in “officer down” self-help/buddy-aid situations, as well as provision of point of wounding care during other high-threat incidents. TECC is based on three phases of care; direct threat, indirect threat, and evacuation care. Participants will learn which interventions should be performed during each phase, and practice during psychomotor skills sessions. This course will also discuss objectives, teaching strategies, and skills stations to enable successful participants to deliver this course in the future as instructors.
Target Audience: All members of the law enforcement community to include, officers, deputies, investigators, detectives, troopers, and agents that have been identified as instructors for their agency.
