The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) was convened to speed the transition of military medical lessons learned from the battlefield to all civilian crisis and high risk operational medical response in order to reduce preventable causes of death in both our first responders and civilian population.
The Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines are a set of best practice recommendations created and maintained by C-TECC for casualty management during ALL civilian tactical and high risk medical operations, including but not limited to law enforcement scenarios. Tactics are used daily in all first responder activities, thus 'Tactical' in this sense means 'operational' and emphasizes the need for the first responder to consider the tactical scenario as he or she is rendering care.
Based upon the principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), TECC addresses and accounts for the differences in the civilian environment, resources, patient population, and scope of practice from the military combat environment of TCCC.
The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) is comprised of a broad range of interagency operational and academic leaders in the practice of high threat medicine and fire/rescue from across the nation, including members from emergency medicine, emergency medical services, police, fire, and the military special operations community.
