Civilian based — Tactical Emergency Casualty Care Course/ First Care Providers
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) is a system of simple stabilizing medical interventions that can be utilized in various emergencies by anyone who has had the appropriate training. Similar to what the Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines did for military settings, civilians need a framework for use in dangerous operational scenarios that defines constraints in both the civilian environment and resources while providing medical guidance to accomplish the life-saving mission. Developed from military battlefield TCCC guidelines, TECC balances the on-going threats, civilian scope of practice, differences in civilian population, medical equipment limits, and the variable resources for response in civilian atypical emergencies. These guidelines represent a treatment framework that accepts mitigated risk while providing a significant lifesaving benefit. TECC at its most basic level seeks to define the correct intervention at the correct time in the continuum of care prior to the arrival of professional first responders.
This 4-hour course will introduce the concepts of TECC, review the most current guidelines intended for the civilian first care provider, and allow for hands-on familiarity with the most common TECC equipment in use. At the end of the course, the students will be given the opportunity to buy specific TECC medical equipment.
