Free Trainging: Mass Casualty Emergency Care

An approach developed in combat that has saved thousands of lives


 
 

| Friday, July 5, 2013


The Firefighters Support Foundation's (FSF) newest training program is now available. Mass Casualty Emergency Care address the totally different approach that EMS personnel must take when responding to incidents of mass casualty. Unlike a typical accident or call, you will not want to take your jump bag or gurney into these scenes, and you will almost certainly be working alone rather than in pairs. This program shows medical responders how to effectively respond to a mass shooting or bombing, among other disasters.

This program presents the basics of Tactical Casualty Combat Care (TCCC), an approach developed in combat zones over the last decade that has saved thousands of lives. It describes the basic operating tactics of TCCC, why traditional EMS responses are inappropriate, the gear and supplies you will need (which are not expansive), and the basic medical approach that will save the most lives in these situations. It also  demonstrates how you will be working with law enforcement at these dynamic scenes, often integrated into an armed escort team.

The program consists of a 40-minute video presentation and an accompanying 60-slide PowerPoint.  The presenter is a commander of an major state police SWAT team, who has instituted TCCC in his team and taught it widely.

The program is free to all members of public safety and  emergency management agencies.
