About the Event

This 1-day class will cover TECC essential skills and fighting while injured. We

prepare you for another aspect of the fight, thinking and problem-solving. The day will be

broken into 2 sections, medical and defense. They will build upon each other, and you will be

required to perform these congruently. We will cover TECC active bystander guidelines for the care of traumatic injuries, expanding upon stop the bleed. 

The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care used the military battlefield guidelines of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) as an evidence-based starting point in the development of civilian-specific medical guidelines for high threat operations. Each phase and medical recommendation of the military TCCC guidelines was examined and

discussed by the Committee, and then was re-written, annotated, or removed through consensus voting of the Guidelines Committee to create civilian-specific, civilian appropriate guidance. Additionally, the Committee added

and/or put specific emphasis on several medical recommendations not included in TCCC to address high threat operational aspects unique to civilian operations.

Active Bystander - Empowered community members, who are present in the event but not so severely injured that they cannot assist others can serve a critical role during the initial moments after complex and dynamic disasters.

They must have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time-sensitive, life-saving interventions; they are the first link in the trauma chain of survival.
