Law Enforcement and First Response Tactical Casualty Care (LEFR-TCC), is continuing education offered trough NAEMT's PHTLS program. This course was developed in collaboration with Denver Health Medical Center's EMS Education Department and the Denver Police Department's Metro/SWAT unit and NAEMT's Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) Committee. It 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 life until EMS responders can safely enter a tactical scene.
This course combines principles of PHTLS and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), with the training provided to military medics by all branches of our Armed Services. It is consistent with the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines, and meets the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus Documentation Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.
Course participants 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.
Upon completion of the course, participants will:
Understand the rationale for immediate steps for hemorrhage control (including external hemorrhage control, direct pressure and wound packing, early use of a tourniquet for severe hemorrhage, internal hemorrhage control by rapid evacuation, and transportation to major hospital/trauma center.
Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg
Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage
Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices
Demonstrate the correct application of a topical hemostatic dressing (combat gauze)
Recognize the tactically relevant indicators for shock
