Tactical Emergency Casualty Care

This course examines and addresses the unique and challenging requirements of administering point of wounding medical care by Fire/Rescue/EMS personnel to patients during a high-threat event.

Fire/Rescue/EMS providers will learn to distinguish between life-saving and secondary interventions, and when they should be applied based on the prevailing threat to responders and patients.  

TECC vs. TCCC

Is there a difference?

 Federal and civilian tactical and emergency medical response teams now stand at the same crossroads the military special operations medical community stood at in the early 1990s. Implementing TCCC guidelines as written into civilian protocols has the same fundamental flaws as utilizing civilian ATLS principles for battlefield treatment of combat wounded. This practice is essentially basing medical care on a doctrine designed to address the specific environment and restrictions of the military battlefield, not the civilian setting.

TCCC is written for the combat medic operating in a combat theater, not for the civilian tactical medic operating in a crack house in downtown Washington, DC. There is no doubt that the weapons and wounds are similar between the two settings, and there is no doubt that federal and civilian tactical teams are indeed in combat. But, just as ATLS did not address many of the unique factors specific to the military combat environment, TCCC does not address the differences in the military setting, the federal or civilian provider, and the non-military environment.

These FCPs often have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time-sensitive, life-saving interventions; the FCP is the first link in the trauma chain of survival.

The takeaway from this page, logically then, is that blind implementation of TCCC doctrine by federal and civilian first responders without consideration for these subtle differences will result in a practice that will not be as effective and potentially may be detrimental in some populations.

Similar to what TCCC did for the medical care in the military combat setting, civilian and federal first responders needed a new paradigm, a framework that defined the environment and resource constraints, and provided guidance that would allow best evidence-based management of patients to accomplish the life-saving mission.

To address this need, a diverse group of first responder experts called the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) was formed and, in May 2011, held their inaugural meeting to create the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care guidelines (TECC).

These TECC guidelines, as a result, are a set of best practice recommendations for casualty management during high threat civilian tactical and rescue operations and the standard for modern pre-hospital tactical emergency medical support.
