First Aid in a Tactical Environment
“In the tactical environment, rapid treatment & evacuation of casualties is essential. 90% of deaths are known to occur before patients reach medical facilities, with some 20% of deaths often seen as preventable. Standard medical training does not prepare you for these types of situations.”

Thunder Valley Casino, 1200 Athens Avenue, Lincoln, CA 95648
Day-2: December 2, 2012, Range for Live-Fire Exercises,
Sacramento Valley Shooting Center

The goal of this training is to assist in prepare you as an emergency responder to render care in a high threat environment. Much of what has been learned in the past in civilian emergency medical care deals with treating the single patient, and under normal conditions encountered in the pre-hospital realm. The issues you must address, and in fact the way you view the entire scene, are substantially different when the possibility is strong that someone may be viewing you through the sights of their rifle.

Tactical patient assessment
Tactical trauma care
Tactical triage & evacuation techniques
Care through the barricade
Tactical emergency drills
Integrating with emergency services
Medical threat assessments
Please bring attire suitable for rain or shine as weather does not dictate the fight nor should it affect your training!

All students will be receiving their own Individual First-Aid Kit (IFAK) with a tactical rip away EMT pouch, everything you would need for a real world incident.
