ACTIVE SHOOTER & CRISIS ENTRY TRAINING

BreachExigent Breaching Tactics is designed to provide patrol officers with specialized breaching tactics needed to quickly, efficiently, safely, and successfully achieve 100% penetration through a selected breach point every time without exception. Very similar tactics to SWAT breaching during high risk incidents. The main difference is the element of exigency in a patrol setting, which leaves little time for elaborate planning.

Topics discussed include criteria for an exigent breach, breaching definitions, responsibilities and qualities of a breacher, methods of breaching, PPE and “tools of the trade”, breaching techniques, positioning of breachers, and pre-deployment considerations.

The course will challenge you to perform specialized breaching techniques utilizing such tools as the halligan, ram, shotgun, and many more.

entry1The Basic Tactical Breacher Course is designed to provide the trainee with knowledge and skills needed to quickly, effectively, safely, and successfully achieve 100% penetration through a selected breach point.

Topics discussed include but are not limited to; breaching definition, responsibilities of a breacher, qualities of a breacher, methods of breaching (manual, mechanical, ballistic, use of vehicles, exothermic), proper use of various tools, PPE, position of breachers, breaching techniques, pre-deployment considerations, and more.

Students will participate in hands on training and practical application of all tools and demonstrate proficiency in tactics and techniques.

SoloThe Solo Active Shooter Response course will provide first responders with advanced patrol tactics needed to quickly, efficiently, and safely end an active shooter situation in a solo capacity.

The course is structured for school resource and liaison officers assigned to designated schools, smaller or rural agencies, which often experience lower manpower and greater back-up response times, or any officer who wants the skills to respond in a solo capacity should the need arise.

We will discuss a wide range of topics from pre-event considerations and mindset, to tactics, equipment, and medical contingencies.

This class will provide you with the knowledge, tactics, and confidence to immediately deploy and quickly interrupt and end a suspects violent actions.

PASIPatrol Active Shooter Response provides first responders with advanced patrol tactics needed to quickly, efficiently, and safely resolve an active shooter situation.

Topics covered include pre-deployment options for team response, the definition & implementation of an Active Shooter/Crisis Entry Team, understanding “contact clues” and “indicators”, exterior and interior movement strategies, breaching tactics, room entry and room domination principles.

We will develop your basic knowledge of tactical casualty care, both in self-aid and buddy aid, along with scene control, security, and crime scene responsibilities after the threat is over.

This course provides dynamic, fast paced, force-on-force scenarios that will challenge and push you outside of your comfort zone.

InstActive Shooter Crisis Entry Instructor is designed to provide the necessary information to learn, develop, and instruct a complete active shooter response plan within a police agency.

Upon completing this certification, you will have the knowledge, principles, and fundamentals necessary to create and implement an effective active shooter response plan within your own department.

Course topics include solo and team response options, manual and ballistic breaching, tac-med concepts, instructor methodology, and much more. All material is based on the most up-to-date “industry standard” information.

You must be instructor certified and be an active instructor with their respective agency to attend.

Warning:These programs require participants to be in “tactical” physical shape. These courses require strenuous physical activity, especially during the training scenarios. Students will be exposed to a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to: simulated tactical operations, incoming fire with weapons firing blanks or soft projectiles (Simunition®, UTM®, paintball, and other “non-lethal” projectiles), simulated “explosions”, darkness with austere field conditions, intense psychological stress inoculation, operating in tactical gear during extreme weather conditions, including heat. Please know your level of fitness before registering for courses.

TACTICAL EMS

CPRThis expert-level program helps keep healthcare professionals prepared and ready to respond as they encounter life-threatening emergencies, provide basic life support, and respond to choking and other airway obstruction incidents.

ASHI’s CPR Pro for the Professional Rescuer has been approved for training for Emergency Medical Services personnel and is accepted by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

teccThis 16-hour course covers topics designed to decrease preventable death in the tactical situation. Topics include: Hemorrhage control; surgical airway control and needle decompression; strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; caring for pediatric patients; and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.

At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. The phases are as follows:

Direct Threat Care, Indirect Threat Care, Evacuation Care

TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the normal operating conditions of most EMS agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event.

ccufiThe Law Enforcement & First Responder Tactical Casualty Care (LEFR-TCC) course teaches public safety first responders including police, other law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder’s life until EMS practitioners can safely enter a tactical scene.

The LEFR-TCC course combines the principles of PHTLS and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), with the training provided to military medics by all branches of our Armed Services. It is consistent with the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines, and meets the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus Document on Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.

In addition to providing care under fire, you will learn tactical considerations and procedures when conducting downed officer/citizen rescue and recovery. Risk analysis, initiative-based tactics, and immediate action drills are just a few of the topics covered in this medically and tactically intensive course.

TC3Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) conducts TCCC courses under the auspices of its PHTLS program, the recognized world leader in prehospital trauma education.

The course is designed for combat EMS/military personnel, including medics, corpsmen, and pararescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations, however this course content and structure has been modified for law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel.

This TCCC course is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT), and is also approved by the Arizona Peace Officer’s Standards and Training Board (AZPOST) for continuing education credit.

cuff2This program combines the TECC course with the concept of Rapid Assisted Casualty Extraction, or R.A.C.E., Teams.

The development of this course fulfills need for expedited medical care by police, fire, and EMS personnel when responding to active shooter/mass casualty incidents (ASI/MCI). Born from the recommendations in the “Hartford Consensus” and FEMA push for a combined first responder effort to ASI/MCI, this program brings swift and critical care to those in need, as close to the point of wounding as safely possible.

By pairing law enforcement responders with fire/EMS personnel, R.A.C.E Teams can gain more immediate access to casualties at the point of injury. This allows medical responders to quickly “assess, treat, position, and continue” as they move through cleared areas treating the wounded, under close protection by law enforcement officers.

Upon completion of this program, police, fire, and EMS responders will be able to seamlessly work together while functioning as R.A.C.E. Team.

Warning:These programs require participants to be in “tactical” physical shape. These courses require strenuous physical activity, especially during the training scenarios. Students will be exposed to a variety of conditions, including, but not limited to: simulated tactical operations, incoming fire with weapons firing blanks or soft projectiles (Simunition®, UTM®, paintball, and other “non-lethal” projectiles), simulated “explosions”, darkness with austere field conditions, intense psychological stress inoculation, operating in tactical gear during extreme weather conditions, including heat.
