Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)
This training program was developed in accordance with the Principles of Guidelines Instruction set by the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care and is compliant with the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus.
The goals of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care include the following:
To balance the threat, civilian scope of practice, differences in civilian population, medical equipment limits, and variable resources for response to atypical emergencies
To establish a framework that balances risk:benefit ratio for all civilian operational medical response
To provide guidance on medical management of preventable deaths at or near the point of wounding
To minimize provider risk while maximizing patient benefit
