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.
