Day 1 learning will focus on responder considerations and capabilities, equipment and essentially a “how  to” for the responder.


Day 2 will focus completely on real-world scenarios (hands-on) designed to push agency capabilities. The program will define and expand on the Rescue Task Force concept and assist students in the preparation of creating programs for their individual departments. 


RTF Operations focus on actions first responders can take in conjunction with responding counterparts, to reduce preventable deaths in direct and indirect threat situations such as an active shooter, suicide bomber, or other terrorist driven mass casualty event.  The program will define and expand on the Rescue Task Force concept and assist students in the preparation of creating programs for their individual departments.


During training, students will properly demonstrate:


Tactical: RTF pre-planning, individual and team movement from time of incident through completion. Students will practice these skills during instructor lead scenarios to effectively challenge the students to maximize performance and retention.  


Medical: manual airway management, tourniquet application, wound packing with hemostatic agents, application of chest seals. All medical training standards follow TCCC Guidelines.

Operational: Students will work together with LE, FIRE, EMS and other emergency response elements to complete tasks as separate elements working in unison under a unified command structure to stress the importance of communication and team understanding that will help maximize effectiveness and mitigate injury or loss of life.


Post-Course Evaluation: Upon program completion, all students will be given a post-course evaluation link to complete. Upon completion of evaluation, students will receive course completion certificate.

Equipment: All students attending this course will be provided with training tourniquets for use during training.


Bleeding Control Basics:

The course was developed in response to efforts by the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services to increase collaboration between law enforcement, the fire service and EMS in responding to active shooter/IED/mass casualty events. B-Con is consistent with the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus on Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.


This teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe. The course is designed for non-medical personnel such as law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians requiring this basic training.


At the completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the rationale for early use of a tourniquet for life-threatening extremity bleeding.
  • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg.
  • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage.
  • Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices.


*Bleeding Control Basics is geared towards non-medical providers
