As a first responder there is a chance that you will be on a scene where someone will be severely wounded. If your life is still in danger from an active shooter or some other threat and medics are unavailable it will be up to you to react. Tactical Combat Casualty Care or TCCC was developed to assist military personnel in dealing with this type of situation. This course has been designed to help Law Enforcement Officers benefit from knowledge gained in combat and incorporate it into their own tactics, techniques and procedures.
