Rescue Task Force for EMS
January 25-26, 2018
Course Description: Recent events have spurred a national discussion on the survivability of victims and safety of first responders during active shooter events (ASEs) and other forms of aggressive deadly behavior (ADB). The Rescue Task Force (RTF) for EMS course provides EMS practitioners with tools and techniques to save civilian lives through the application of RTF and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) principles.
Instructors will lead discussion on several topics, including a TECC overview, working within the Rescue Task Force model, and CCP management. Students will apply lessons learned in the classroom to skill lanes, including rescue task force movement, hemorrhage control and triage skills. The workshop will culminate in several scenario based activities that will incorporate rescue task force movement, TECC principles, warm zone operations, CCP management, life-saving medical interventions, and collaboration with law enforcement.
Topics Include: Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, Rescue Task Force Movement, Life-Saving Medical Interventions, Triage, and Scenario-Based Activities
