Critical Incident Casualty Management
Preparing The Civilian Warrior
DESCRIPTION: This medical preparedness program is designed to provide civilians the basic skills needed to bridge the gap between point of injury and arrival of first responders / casualty transport to a definitive care facility.
The foundation of the training is based on the military’s combat proven Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) and the civilian translation of TCCC, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC).
The training provided enhances the likelihood of survival from massive bleeding, penetrating chest injuries and airway compromise. Participants will learn methods on how to react if you, your loved ones or other bystanders are injured from violent attacks. Specialized medical equipment to include tourniquets and hemostatic agents along with the use and deployment of individual first aid kits will be thoroughly explored.
Participants are also introduced to basic techniques to increase situational awareness and develop a warrior mindset that helps in identifying potential signs of danger from imminent attacks, all intended to increase your chances of survival.
