Tactical Combat Casualty Care Course

 Saturday October 25th and Sunday October 26th

     TCCC

The Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) course introduces evidence-based, life-saving techniques and strategies for providing the best trauma care on the battlefield.

NAEMT conducts TCCC courses under the auspices of its PHTLS program, the recognized world leader in pre-hospital trauma education.


NAEMT’s TCCC courses use the PHTLS Military textbook and are fully compliant with the Department of Defense’s Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) guidelines. It is the only TCCC course endorsed by the American College of Surgeons.
The course is designed for combat EMS/military personnel, including medics, corpsmen, and para-rescue personnel deploying in support of combat operations. The course's content and structure also can be modified for law enforcement special weapons and tactics and special response teams. NAEMT also offers a tactical version of the TCCC course for tactical emergency casualty care.

 PHTLS combines the expertise of world-class trauma surgeons, emergency physicians, paramedics and EMS educators. NAEMT's TCCC courses are taught by a global network of experienced instructors fully trained in both PHTLS and TCCC. NAEMT maintains a strict quality control program for its instructors. To support course sites, instructors and students, NAEMT maintains a network of TCCC regional coordinators both in the U.S. and internationally, and staff at its Headquarters Office. Course administration is streamlined and cost-effective.
NAEMT’s TCCC course is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT). 

Second Alarmer's experienced instructors are all seasoned area EMS providers.  SARS programs are structured to cover core program content in a manner that allows students to apply the concepts and practices learned to all types of incidents from routine emergency calls, through active shooter and mass trauma incidents.  Classroom time is augmented by several "field training exercises" conducted using Abington Townships state of the art multi-million dollar training grounds including a cold-smoke house, firearms range, and vehicle pad.

Course runs from 0800-1600 each day.

Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support Course

 Saturday October 18th and Sunday October 19th

    


NAEMT's Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for pre-hospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of pre-hospital care through global education.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. 

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a pre-hospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.

 Although PHTLS originated in the United States, it has evolved and now serves as an international education program available to EMS providers in 47 countries.

Second Alarmer's experienced instructors are all seasoned area EMS providers.  SARS programs are structured to cover core program content in a manner that allows students to apply the concepts and practices learned to all types of incidents from routine emergency calls, through active shooter and mass trauma incidents.  Classroom time is augmented by several hands on "practical" session.
