Interested in thoughts and practices on CCP Security. How are you integrating search, secure and sort into your SRU training? Or are you?

Based on the fact I didn't get any feed back I will re-ask the question in a different way.

Questions in my circle are discussing, Role of LE in triage in a hot zone, setting up an initial Casualty Collection Point (CCP) in the hot zone once an area has been cleared and secured, (a distant section of a school, commercial building, and warehouse space). This could lead to the tactical medical being escorted in to that area, simultaneously. Developing an extraction plan, to pass injured over to a sorting corridor.

I think you get the idea. I am interested in thoughts, perceived limitations, expanded roles and the like regarding collecting, securing and transitioning to the field care stage.

Thank you. 

I have just discussed this topic recently when discussing an active shooter response, based off the Hartford Consensus the more involved by LE, Fire and lay rescuers the better the outcome. A CCP fits this requirement. If there was more emphasis on CCP procedures in schools or mass incident, patients could be moved to a staging area, triaged and evacuated to the proper facility, I think a CCP in the Direct Threat care or Casevac location is preferred or a marshaling area outside the hot zone would allow for more providers to access wounded, vice the Direct Threat phase or hot zone. I recently assisted with a Tac Med course and my thoughts is that once completed a medic working with a tactical team should feel more comfortable working in a hot or warm zone alone and understand the procedures to request evacuation, manpower or security.
