Emergency Casualty Care Under Fire Course

One Day  $135.oo

Special Price for Teachers/Faculty $95.oo

This dynamic class combines Emergency Casualty Care training with disabled/disadvantage shooting positions.  The course is open to all experienced practitioners.  Tac Pistol 1P or similar course preferred prior to enrollment.

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) is the civilian evolution and application of the military Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines (TCCC). Military units that have trained all of their members in TCCC have documented the lowest incidence of preventable deaths among their casualties in the history of modern warfare. TCCC-based pre-hospital trauma training is now becoming widespread in the US civilian sector as well. TECC is the civilian evolution and application of the military TCCC guidelines. Overall, the principles of TECC are not difficult to teach – the actual medical interventions such as pressure dressings and tourniquets are now commonplace for everyday trauma. What is unique about high threat medical principles is less about what is done medically and more about when it is done, what injuries on focused on, and what can be excluded.

Although the word ‘tactical’ in common use implies law enforcement associated operations, every first responder utilizes ‘tactics’ on every call every day. The word tactical refers to the operational decisions that are made during response.  Every one of these operational decisions has an effect on medical care and the competing priorities of operations and medical care need to be considered in real time. TECC allows you to do just this.

 

TECC has applications for ALL high risk operations, where there is a real and on-going risk to both the patient and provider. Examples of high risk operations include, but are not limited to:

  • Active shooter response
  • Wilderness medicine
  • Confined space, rope and other technical rescue operations
  • Law enforcement ‘officer down’ response
  • SWAT medical support
  • Response to explosive mass casualty
  • All other mass casualty response

As situations both local and abroad become more intense, Operators must how to conduct various weapons drills such as loading, combat reloading, clearing malfunctions with either hand, independent of the other hand.  In this course you will link the newly learned TECC skills with disabled/disadvantage shooting situations to prepare for the worse.  We will put you “in the fight” and teach you to work through various life or death situations.

  • Pistol, duty belt with three magazines, 100 rds

High Risk Patrol Tactics Course, April 6th - 7th /2020

High Risk Patrol Tactics Course

“Tactical training for street officers”

COST $189.00 

 

Officers are being ambushed at an increasing rate while responding to routine calls. The time is now upon us , ALL Officers who respond to Calls for Service MUST be tactically trained. The HIGH RISK PATROL TACTICS Course is our newest course designed just for this reason. I’ve compiled the best of my 30 plus years into this 20 hour course with the intention of teaching the Officer as much tactical information possible over two days. These are not watered down active shooter only tactics based around a single situation. The tactics taught in this course apply to any and ALL situations Officers face, rural or urban environments. At $189.00 you will not find a better package taught by a more experienced instructor. Some of the topics taught include:

  • How to Properly Set Up a Plate Carrier
  • Understanding Categories of Attack
  • Important Survival Considerations
  • Aspects of Stress Response
  • Close Range Encounters, Live Fire with Pistol and Rifle
  • Firing from Disabled and Disadvantage Positions
  • Individual and Small Team Movement (1-3 Officers)
  • Exterior Movement, Vehicle to Hard Cover
  • Exterior Movement, Hard cover to Vehicle
  • Interior Movement, Live Fire Shoot House, 1, 2 and 3 man Tactics
  • Vehicle Hard Points, Long Range Encounters
  • The Approach and Contact Phases of the CFS
  • Vehicle Approach on High Risk Calls
  • Vehicle and Officer Down Scenarios
  • Equipment and Vehicle Usage
  • Training/Working in Daylight and in Darkness

Much More……

I have always taught and to this day believe it is on the individual Officer to see to it that they have the best training possible. Most Departments are overwhelmed and burdened with scheduling and providing the many mandated course required these days. NONE of these have anything to do with Officer survival. It is for this reason that I keep my price VERY REASONABLY and anyone who has taken one of my course will tell you that I give you my 100%, every course I teach! You will work hard in this class any you will leave with fresh knowledge and more familiar with tactics that you will be able to employ on your very next shift, should the need arise. We all want to go home every day to our families I have committed myself to training as many Officers as possible so that we all go home!
