ABSTRACT

Law Enforcement Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) Training and Individual First Aid Kits (IFAK) White Paper   [open pdf - 429KB]

"Mission-appropriate aspects of tactical emergency casualty care (TECC) and the use of individual first aid kits (IFAK) should be part of basic training and equipment issued for all local emergency responders. Law enforcement is a dangerous occupation. Law enforcement officers (LEO) operate, often alone, in unsecured and hazardous conditions interacting with persons who may be unstable, unpredictable, and potentially deadly. LEOs are routinely involved in high risk operations such as high speed emergency response and vehicle pursuits, active violence interdiction, high risk warrant service, and traffic stops where the officers are vulnerable to both directed violence by detained occupants and on-going vehicular traffic."
