Tactical Medicine 1 (Basic)

The Tactical Medicine 1 (Basic) course is designed for anyone who is responsible for providing medical support or "out of hospital" care in a tactical setting. This course specifically targets medical personnel who are new to the tactical setting and expands the medical knowledge of operators. It focuses on basic tactics, trauma management and teamwork.

This course is designed to be flexible and tailor made to the target audience if special needs are required (medicine and tactics in a rural setting, more medicine stressed for law enforcement/military personnel, more tactics stressed for the firefighter/EMS personnel, etc.).

DAY ONE: Starts in the classroom and consists of a basic indoctrination to the role of the tactical medic. The classes for the day include: trauma management, equipment selection, tactical patient assessment, less lethal weapons, principles of close quarter battle/room clearing and team movement.

DAY TWO: Buddy carries and self defense techniques are shown and practiced in the morning. In the afternoon tactical patient assessment, and room clearing are rehearsed.

DAY THREE: Scenarios are run throughout the day in a sensory overload environment. All of the students rotate through the positions of an entry team to become familiar with the various roles involved in a high risk situation or environment. The position of the medic is stressed and evaluated.
