Introduction

Tactical First Aid is designed to teach life-saving measures and techniques.  Mirrors basic duties and functions of EMT-Intermediates and -Paramedics only on a much minor scale.  TFA is designed to be “pick-‘n-choose” course of instructions; length of course is dependent upon client’s desires.  Minimum class size is 10.  See TFR for a fuller description. The TFA is designed to be “pick-‘n-choose” course of instruction.

Objectives

  • TFA prepares all non-medically-trained operators for the basis of the latest tactical/combat techniques and procedures.
  • It instills medical confidence and understanding for the imposition of casualties on the battlefield.
  • TFA is preventative medicine that each operator needs know for potentially compromising health hazards.
  • It is self-care and buddy-care, thus, survival at the individual operators’ level.
