Fire department gets training in tactical combat casualty care

Fredericksburg City Manager Bev Cameron reports that the city’s Fire Department received specialized training recently in conjunction with the FBI.

Fire Department personnel took part in a course on Tactical Combat Casualty Care,  the same course SWAT teams and military personnel receive. They also took part in Tactical Emergency Casualty Care training.

The goal of both courses is to prepare EMS personnel to prioritize in a  hostile atmosphere, Cameron reported.

The programs are geared to helping EMS personnel safely enter scenes that are not fully secure and safely treat and evacuate patients.
