Rescue Team/Active Shooter Course

This course teaches the Rescue Team Task Force concept, which is a major change in doctrine for EMS providers to Active Shooter situations. The rescue team task force brings trained day to day EMS providers and partners them with law enforcement on scene to rapidly enter secured areas of an active shooter incident, to provide triage, emergent care and patient extrication to a casualty collection point. This course is designed to bring EMS together with law enforcement to collaboratively train as a rescue team task force. It will include classroom instruction and fast-paced exercises. EMS training will include: performing a quick initial medical assessment and immediate lifesaving interventions in a chaotic and stressful environment, rapid patient movement, introduction to ballistic vests, moving and communicating with law enforcement in various formations. Law enforcement training will focus on the establishment of secured areas and the escorting and protection of EMS personnel.
