Tactical Medicine Training

Tactical medical training designed for first responders, our program provides combat proven life saving techniques.

Over the last decade there has been a dramatic increase in mass casualty incidents both in the United States and internationally. Active shooter situations, acts of domestic terrorism and large-scale acts of violence have become all too common. Coupled with a rise in attacks on law enforcement across the country these incidents pose a unique challenge for police officers, private security and public safety organizations. Responders are trained to react and address the threat in these situations but commonly have limited medical training to assist wounded citizens or other officers.

There is a need for first responders to provide emergency medical treatment to citizens and each other, our program is designed to provide this training. The SR3 tactical medicine training program is structured around the fundamentals of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC). TCCC is now the standard method for trauma management utilized by the United States Armed Forces and has proven its reliability countless times in combat. Developed to bring lessons learned from the battlefield to civilian critical incident response, TECC is the industry standard for public service.

Our course provides first responders the ability to assess and treat life threatening injuries that occur in the field while still in a hostile environment. This allows the injured to be stabilized immediately before being extricated for transport to a medical facility. This training is invaluable for police officers that have been critically injured as it allows additional officers on scene to render aid. We offer a structured curriculum involving hands on classroom training designed for students with little to no medical training. This training is then reinforced with scenarios, specifically tailored to create realistic situations for the customer using practical application.
