Over the past twenty years, active shooter events have occurred with increasing regularity and severity. We understand the vast challenges these scenes pose to responding agencies and we want to assist by providing access to timely and comprehensive training, which can make an enormous difference if your agency is faced with one of these events. In response to the recent incident in Parkland (FL) several weeks ago, EMS1 and EMS1 Academy are partnering to offer a free 1-hour, CAPCE-accredited online course, EMS Response to Active Shooter Incidents (BLS), available through April 15.

This course is designed to provide instruction to EMS providers in how to best – and most safely – respond to an active shooter incident.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize and utilize proper terminology related to an active shooter response
  • Identify and prioritize the proper medical interventions associated with tactical medical response
  • Describe the proper functions of a rescue task force and a casualty collection point
