EMS: SWAT/Tactical EMS and Explosives Mitigation and Treatment in the Tactical Setting
The majority of this course will focus on SWAT's genesis and formation over the last 50 years and the addition of Tactical EMS in austere settings. These settings in the tactical environment can be dangerous for SWAT operators and medics alike. However, serious planning and best practices are utilized when forming a SWAT medic team. This course will also introduce the attendees to various commercial, military and homemade explosives. Explosive breaching is used by SWAT operators; therefore, blast injuries must also be covered and emphasized. Videos from many different explosive materials will be shown to provide the impact needed to identify today's explosives in use. The response to a bomb or post-blast scene will be covered with some basic medical treatments that medics and officers can perform to help victims in the field.
