At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.
TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the normal operating conditions of most EMS, Fire, and Police agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or spree killer event.
Direct Threat Care
Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
Indirect Threat Care
Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.
Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.
Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)
Prerequisites: Must be a public safety professional. (Fire, EMS, LEO, Security). Provide your EMT Number upon registration.
