NAEMT’s Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) course teaches prehospital providers how to respond to, and care for, patients in a civilian tactical environment to decrease preventable deaths. The two-day, 16-hour course 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.
The following topics are covered: hemorrhage control; surgical airway control and needle decompression; creating a casualty collection point (CCP); strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; management of shock; prevention and treatment of eye injuries; caring for pediatric patients; and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.
TECC is fully evidence-based and consistent with the U.S. Department of Defense Tactical Combat Casualty Care.
