Active violence will happen in your jurisdiction. The time to plan is now. Learn more about rescue task force medical care and how factors like immediate intervention, bystander care and method of transport impact survivability.

In this EMS1 webinar, sponsored by Rescue Essentials, David K. Tan, MD, EMT-T, FAEMS; and Chief Rob Wylie discuss:

  • Establishing unified command
  • What we need to know to enter the warm zone
  • The fundamentals of trauma priorities in an active shooter event
  • Overcoming the barriers to establishing an RTF program

All of these strategies depend on coordinated training for success. Dr. Tan and Wylie also cover tabletop exercises between law enforcement, fire and EMS; as well as tourniquet, triage and first aid training.

“I’ve attended several webinars presented by Dr. Tan and Chief Wylie and they are always dynamic with their information, condensed down to the key features.”
