The course is designed to provide life saving care at the operator level. Tactical operators must be properly equipped and trained to deal with combat trauma beyond what they learned in Basic First Aid during Academy training. Fire department paramedics cannot be relied upon to deliver timely life-saving interventions and they will not enter an unsecured area. Getting a casualty to definitive care (trauma center) can vary from minutes to several hours depending on the tactical situation (N Hollywood Shootout, VA Tech Shooting, Columbine, etc). Utilizing the current Tactical Combat Casualty Care Guidelines, developed by US Special Operations; the principles and techniques of treating combat casualties will be taught. Emphasis is on self-aid and buddy-aid. The student will be issued an IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit) which will contain the latest state-of-the-art medical tools that address the leading causes of preventable death on the “battlefield.” The student will learn not only how to treat life-threatening injuries, but more importantly when to use the techniques during a high-risk tactical operation. The course is taught through a combination of lecture/demo, practical application, and reality-based scenario training. The goal of the course is to empower the operator to treat casualties, prevent additional casualties, and complete the mission within the “austere” environment of law enforcement special operations.
