Course information:
Providing emergency services in austere environments, whether you are a law enforcement officer, firefighter, or EMT, requires special judgment and skills not otherwise taught in the standard curricula. This introductory course will fill that gap in training which has become more apparent as violence against the public and public safety personnel alike continues to rise from sources such as gang activity and domestic terrorism. In this course we will teach and reemphasize key components of tactical medicine to include:

  • Team organization
  • Threat Assessments
  • Escape/Evasion and Cover/Concealment
  • Trauma Management
  • Physical Fitness/Agility
  • Tactical Operations
  • Casualty Care and Patient Extraction/Movement
  • Firearms and Weapons Familiarization
  • K-9 Emergencies
  • Dynamic Scene Management
Items suggested for the classes include:
  • Knee and elbow pads
  • Gloves
  • Bullet-resistant vest
  • Eye protection
  • Helmet
  • Personal hydration system
  • Medical kit
  • All-weather gear
  • Flashlight
Preregistration is encouraged as the class is limited to 25 participants.
  • The course cost is $180.00 payable on the first day of class.
  • This course can be fee exempt if you qualify.
