Tactical Casualty Care for Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders: (TCC-LEFR) This one-day (8 hour) course teaches public safety responders (police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and other first responders) the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder’s or victim’s life until EMS personnel can safely enter a tactical scene. The approach is divided into 3 phases, depending upon the tactical situation. The course combines didactic lecture with practical hands-on experience.
