About the Course
Tactical Casualty Care for Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders: (TCC-LEFR) This one-day (8 hour) course teaches public safety responders (police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and other first responders) the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder’s or victim’s life until EMS personnel can safely enter a tactical scene. The approach is divided into 3 phases, depending upon the tactical situation. The course combines didactic lecture with practical hands-on experience. The participant will learn life-saving medical actions such as bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe.
