(TECC) teaches EMS practitioners and other prehospital providers at all levels how to respond to and care for patients in a civilian

tactical environment. It is designed to decrease preventable deaths in tactical situations such as mass casualty terrorist attacks, hostage scenarios and active shooter events. TECC was created to apply the lessons learned during the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars to the civilian world of tactical medicine.

Topics covered:

 ·   Hemorrhage control

·   Surgical airway control and needle decompression

·   Strategies for treating wounded

·   Responders in threatening environments

·   Caring for pediatric patients

·   Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety

·   Environmental emergencies

·   Infectious disease

·   Abdominal disorders

·  Toxicological emergencies

·   Exposure to hazardous materials

TECC presents the three phases of tactical care:

    Direct threat care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.

    Indirect threat 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

Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognizing them as TECC providers for 4 years, 16 hours of national CAPCE credit, 16 hours of Mass. OEMS credit and 1 year free membership to NAEMT.
