Active Shooter Response for the First-Due Company

Monday, April 24
This class will provide the basic principles of the rescue task force (RTF) and tactical emergency casualty care to better respond to high-threat active assailant incidents. Current evolution of these events shows the need for responders to continue to adapt strategy and tactics to safely and efficiently mitigate these incidents. The evidence-based content delivered will be consistent with current best practices and guidelines from the Department of Homeland Security, NFPA 3000, and the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care. Students will be provided the tools, skills, and information for continued training at their own agencies specific to RTF implementation and will leave with instructional materials, knowledge of evidence-based medicine specific to high-threat incidents, and a framework for program design. This is a highly interactive class with opportunities to try the latest equipment through ample hands-on skills evolutions.'
