STREET MEDICINE INSTRUCTOR COURSE

Why Take This Course

The Street Medicine Instructor Course provides law enforcement instructors the knowledge and ability to teach TEMS within their department. Violence in our society is on the rise and the streets have proven to be a dangerous place. Serving warrants, active shooter, terrorist events and even routine traffic stops have potential for casualties. Many of the first responder programs fail to address this very real potential. TEMS gives the law enforcment officer the edge in preventing LODD.

Tactical medicine courses have traditionally been for combat medics and civilian paramedics. Similar to military combat lifesaver courses this TEMS program trains non-medical law enforcement personnel to provide tactical medical care. It offers ALL law enforcment officers the training and skill to be effective medical force multipliers.

This Instructor Development Course is for any law enforcement officer. It provides the foundation to be an effective instructor to teach the fundamental TEMS skills. These skills are necessary to provide immediate life saving measures in a tactical situation, active shooter, officer down, or anywhere the officer may be first on scene. These are the same skills that are taught to military personnel in the TCCC (Tactical Combat Casualty Care) Course and EMT/Paramedics in the TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) Course.

What You Will Learn

This course is a Train the Trainer Program for sworn law enforcement officers and instructors.

Based on TCCC concepts this course provides the non-medical first responder the skills necessary to provide critical life saving intervention until EMS arrives. The student will complete a tactical medicine course integrated with instructor development training. This course builds upon the fundamentals of emergency trauma care and introduces the latest concepts in emergency treatment. Upon successful completion the instructor will have the knowledge to provide tactical medicine training to other law enforcement personnel within their agency or department.

Topics include: Advanced airway management, hemorrhage control including combat gauze and tourniquets, and recognition/treatment of shock. The instructor candidate will learn instructional techniques to maximize student learning, learn to present skill building sessions and scenarios, and lead fellow students through learning exercises and skill stations.

TACTICAL EMERGENCY CASUALTY CARE

Why Take This Course

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)

Developed by NAEMT’s Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) Committee, the TECC program is based on the guidelines from the Committee on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (Co-TECC) and the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) program. TECC uses lessons learned from our military and applies them to the civilian world of tactical medicine.

This 16-hour course covers topics designed to decrease preventable death in the tactical situation.  Topics include: Hemorrhage control; surgical airway control and needle decompression; strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; caring for pediatric patients; and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.

At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. The phases are as follows:

  • Direct Threat Care
    Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
  • Indirect Threat Care
    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.

TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the normal operating conditions of most EMS agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event.
