EMS Special Situations

Training Opportunity

Course Description: training for emergency medical services (EMS) personnel to respond to requests for service involving circumstances often not encountered, including multiple patients, physical hazards, and difficult operating environments, among others. This training is designed to reinforce correct application of basic emergency medical skills while developing advanced application techniques and scene management through discussion, skill lanes, and scenario-based learning.

Students will be introduced or reminded of the essential elements of Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines that may be necessary in indirect and potential direct threat situations. Additionally, students will be introduced to the concept of medical intelligence as part of a response. Finally, this course will provide students with the opportunities to sharpen basic skills, to practice skills rarely used, and to work in a coordinated fashion when responding with multiple units/agencies. This course is physically demanding: every student should be aware of this and consider self-exclusion if s/he has concerns about their physical condition or suffers from any heath or other physical abnormality that may place them at risk.
