Josh Bucher is back to talk tactical EMS- primary mission is to care for law enforcement operators. Josh talks training, what it’s like to be involved in an ‘active’ situation, as well as what he carries in his med kit.

TCCC and TECC can be found here - http://www.naemt.org/education/CourseDirectory.aspx - the certified courses by NAEMT

You can just google courses - there are third party companies that teach them as well. Most use instructors with prior tactical experience.

CONTOMS can be found here - http://contoms.chepinc.org/ - These classes are much harder to find.

Excellent timing! I've just been asked to write a EMS Protocol for a neighboring police department who has a SWAT officer who is also a paramedic and been trained in Tactical EMS. Where can I get training on how to be his supervising physician or look at an example Protocol to use as a starting point? Thanks!

The TCCC treatment guidelines are freely available online. CONTOMs does offer a medical director's course that is 1 day long. I would suggest reaching out to someone with experience in tactical EMS to help draft something.

And the guidelines can be found here

Nice interview.

For civilian law enforcement operations, TECC protocol is probably more appropriate and easier to apply to a particular law enforcement agency. TCCC serves a good background info for TECC medical protocols. Both are important for TEMS medical director to understand to develop good customized policy for a new TEMS program.

Thanks for the clarification! That's definitely important.
