Event Description

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care - 16 Hour (DPH-107-16)

NAEMT's  Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian tactical environment. It is designed to decrease preventable deaths in a tactical situation.  The course presents the three phases of tactical care:

  • Direct Threat Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.

  • Indirect Threat Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.

  • Evacuation Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.

The 16-hour classroom course covers the following topics:

  • Hemorrhage control;

  • Surgical airway control and needle decompression;

  • Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments;

  • Caring for pediatric patients; and

  • Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.
