Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) Rescue Task Force

image

This civilian tactical care course is designed for health care or tactical providers who hold licensure or certification at any level designation in prehospital care as provided by the country, state, or province that they serve.

This course covers topics designed to decrease preventable death in the tactical situation. Topics include: 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.


Class is approved for 16 hours of continuing education for EMS providers through
CECBEMS

 

At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been wellproven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. The phases are as follows:

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

  • Indirect Threat Care: 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.

TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines

for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC
has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the
normal operating conditions of most EMS agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event.
