Course Details--It’s not a matter of IF, it’s a matter of WHEN the time comes that you will be called upon to perform some level of medical intervention in the line of duty.  Who will it be for?  A fellow officer? Innocent bystander? Perpetrator? Possibly, even yourself?  Do you have the basic knowledge, skills or equipment to perform life-saving procedures during a worst-case scenario?  Even if you have had previous medical training, will you remember it in a life-threatening situation?  Can you take care of yourself or fellow officer until medical care professionals can safely reach you?  This 8-hour intensive class that focuses on BASIC Casualty Care and Rescue Tactics.  This class will teach you what you need to know and will provide you with the tools necessary to save yourself or the life of someone else until EMS can get on scene.  This class is designed for anyone in Law Enforcement from patrol to SWAT, as well as for medical professionals who operate in the tactical environment.  This course will consist of didactic sessions, skills breakout sessions and scenario based training.

letterhead-logoCourse Description--This course follows the latest and fully updated guidelines put forth by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3).  TC3 is the standard of care for life saving medical care in the tactical environment.  TC3 is the golden standard of care utilized by all US Military Special Forces Medics and medically trained soldiers. The information contained in this course has been heavily studied, evaluated and when necessary changes to meet the urgent need of evolving medical care during our presence in Iraq and Afghanistan since the conflict began in 2001. The information and skill sets contained within this course have been proven to save lives.  The focus of this class is to give each student the ability to recognize, evaluate and control life threatening bleeding at the point of wounding, thus by increasing the victim’s chance of survival dramatically.



Course Topics

The course will cover the following:

  • Define the concepts of Casualty Care and why it is important to today’s real threat to Law Enforcement.
  • Creating a better Medical Equipment “Toolbox”.
  • Discuss what Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3) is and the 3-basic phases of TC3.
  • Cover how the right medical intervention at the wrong time can get you killed. 
  • How to perform a quick/basic medical assessment
  • Demonstrate Skills proficiency through hands on training with tourniquet application, hemostatic agents/wound packing, pressure dressings, basic airway management and managing chest injuries. 
  • Officer Down extraction with a variety of conventional and non-conventional methods and equipment.


Medical Equipment Any student who pays for the Casualty Care Course will receive a med-kit. This kit contains the necessary equipment to provide these lifesaving skills on themselves or someone else. This kit includes a TCCC approved/recommended tourniquet, pressure bandage and hemostatic agent. Each student will be trained on how to effectively use each item in their issued or departmental issued medical kit.  This med-kit can be utilized in addition to any pre-existing medical equipment or become their primary medical Kit.  These medical kits are designed to be easily added to Tactical Operations Gear or fit in a patrol vehicle or active shooter style “Go-Bag”.



Each student will receive an IFAK kit for them to keep upon completion of the class.

Any student who wants to bring their own medical kit may do so but it must come with the following items:

--TCCC Recommended Training Tourniquet (CAT; SOFT-T; SOFT-T Wide; etc.)

--Training Pressure Bandage

If student brings their own medical kit or equipment items, TTPOA is not responsible for its use, misuse or replacement.  We recommend that you bring training TQ’s and bandages etc. so that your kit is still complete and fully functional upon completion of the class.
