Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)*

The National Association of EMT's (NAEMT) Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) Course teaches EMS practitioners, pre-hospital providers and other medical professionals who may be part of a team responding to an active shooter incident, how to care for patients in a civilian tactical environment with the goal of decreasing potentially preventable deaths in  a tactical situation. This course is appropriate for both law enforcement and fire service personnel. 

The course focuses on the three (3) phases of tactical care:Screen Shot 2019-03-06 at 3.45.48 PM
