Summary/abstract:
  • This 10-day course enables EMS System Managers to prepare their organizations for major operations by identifying potential hazards, determining potential resource needs, determining how those resources may be acquired, and developing a plan that enables the effective control of these events. Events such as mass-casualty incidents, storms, earthquakes, or technological emergencies, mass gatherings, dignitary visits, and terrorism can place an unusual demand upon our ability to provide continued EMS response to our anticipated daily call volume. It is only through effective planning and preparation for these unique events that we can continue to respond effectively to our customers. This program discusses many of these special operations and the burdens they place upon our communities, EMS systems, and the responders within our systems. This course meets NIMS requirements for ICS 300.

Summary/abstract:
  • Tactical incidents are defined as any malicious activity that threatens the safety of the general public. Further, a tactical incident requires the deployment of police, fire and emergency medical resources. When injuries are reported, firefighters and emergency medical providers may be called upon to deliver patient care in a controlled and protected area of the tactical incident (warm zone). The problem was that the Oak Creek Fire Department (OCFD) did not have procedures that related to working in warm zones during active, tactical incidents. The purpose of this study was to develop a procedure that established the role of fire and emergency medical providers working in warm zones. Using action methodology, this research was intended to improve the OCFD's performance during tactical incidents. This project culminated in the development of a standard operating policy and procedure (SOP) for OCFD. Applied research and procedure development answered the following questions: 1) As it pertains to entry procedures, what considerations and notifications are needed during active tactical operations? 2) What additional qualifications are needed by rescuers who are required to work in an active tactical warm zone? 3) What considerations must be made when bringing emergency medical equipment and supplies into active tactical operations? 4) How are emergency medical responders protected in a warm zone? and 5) What emergency care/treatment is given in a warm zone? Development of the procedures involved an implementation/evaluation strategy. Formative, process, impact and outcome objectives were written to provide guidance throughout the project. Further, 34 feedback responses from OCFD firefighters were analyzed to determine local impact. Results from the feedback instrument reinforced the need for a tactical mass casualty response procedure with risk-reduction measures in place. The recommendation was to purchase appropriate ballistic protection for firefighters, to distribute the procedure, to deliver department-wide training and to conduct joint training with the police department.

Summary/abstract:
  • The research problem was that the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) has no Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) protocals (Protocols). Without Protocols, there was a risk of injury and death for first responders and the public. The purpose of this research was to identify Protocols and challenges faced by executives laboring to implement Protocols with the County EMS system. Descriptive research was used to answer questions through review of Protocols used by the US Military, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD), through analysis of Active Shooter incident nationwide, through review of Protocols developed by the Los Angeles Area Fire Chiefs Association TEMS Working Group, and through evaluation of the LACoFD Protocal approval process. This research was conducted to determine how the US Military implements Protocols on the battlefield. In-depth research led to defining local law enforcement Protocols and how they affected the development of LACoFD Protocols. Protocols developed by the Los Angeles Area Fire Chiefs Association Working Group were reviewed for adoption by LACoFD. Procedures followed include referencing numerous publications describing Tactical Combat Casualty Care Guidelines and case studies of active shooter events. The results of this research define what other TEMS providers have found most successful in their operating programs. Recommendations provide a template for other agencies to perform a gap analysis of their tactical law enforcement approach and identify strategies to develop or enhance their TEMS program.

Summary/abstract:
  • The problem was the Miami Valley Fire District (MVFD) and the law enforcement agencies within its boundaries did not have an active shooter protocol to follow. The purpose of this research was to determine methods the MVFD and the law enforcement agencies within its boundaries could use to create an active shooter protocol. The research methodology used was action. The research questions were: (a) What agencies should be involved in the protocol's development? (b) What are the critical points that should be addressed within the protocol? (c) If a consensus is achieved, who should be responsible for updating the protocol and its implementation? and (d) What model protocols or model guidelines exist with which to provide a comparison? The procedures used were a literature review of previous research and discussions held with three law enforcement agencies, two school systems, the local hospital network, management at the local shopping mall and the MVFD's Battalion Chief in charge of coordinating an active shooter incident response plan. The results were that all of the organizations mentioned above had a plan in place except for MVFD and all were willing to participate in joint training. All of which coincided with the findings of the national publications reviewed. The recommendations were for the MVFD to train its personnel in Tactical Combat Casualty Care tactics for victim treatment in these incidents, and a plan was submitted to follow for joint training with the other agencies in the area including long term follow up.

Summary/abstract:
  • The problem was Winchester Fire - EMS, with other local agencies, did not have a guideline for mitigating active shooter incidents. The purpose of this research was for Winchester Fire - EMS to develop and implement a guideline, with other local agencies, to mitigate active shooter incidents. The research questions were: (a) What should be considered for communications personnel upon receiving information and the dispatch of agencies to an active shooter? (b) What should be considered for law enforcement personnel responding to an active shooter? (c) What are the tactical options for fire and EMS personnel working with law enforcement at an active shooter incident? and (d) What should be considered for fire and EMS personnel responding to an active shooter? An active research method was utilized to develop a multiagency, multijurisdictional guideline. A comprehensive literature review was performed and interviews with department heads conducted to understand their expectations for the operation. Guidelines from other agencies around the county were reviewed providing a foundation for current practices. Key leaders were interviewed, specifically those with a relevant background with military and/or law enforcement experience. The results were unique perspectives on ballistics protection, operating in a hostile environment, combat casualty care, and determining best safe practices to develop a guideline that would work for our agencies. Recommendations were for all agencies involved to implement and train the guideline together, specifically to practice communications and operating within a unified command. Communications personnel would train to provide them an understanding of the scene operations and what intelligence gathering is crucial to the incident. Law enforcement personnel would train as part of the rescue task force to provide protection for the medical personnel. Fire and EMS personnel would train as part of the rescue task force on their ballistics protection and tactical emergency casualty care.

Summary/abstract:
  • Integrating paramedics on special weapons and tactics (SWAT) teams reduces an officer or civilian's risk of death by providing rapid medical care. The theoretical framework for this study was based on the tactical medicine models of Butler, Carmona, and Metzger. This study examined 36 New England SWAT teams to assess if trained tactical paramedics were beneficial to SWAT teams. This nonexperimental quantitative epidemiological research study assessed six research questions to determine if integration of medical support, operations, specialized training, personal protective equipment, and liability protections impacted those SWAT programs using a 22-question online survey. Data were analyzed using chi-square as a test of association and the t-test for differences between groups. Of the 31 law enforcement agencies with a medical support component included on SWAT teams, half of the teams used paramedics during active SWAT operations. There was a statistically significant relationship between the number of tactical emergency medical support personnel on a tactical team, the frequency in tactical operations using TEMS, and tactical teams that use paramedics. Additionally, there was a statistically significant relationship with the police department, which managed the program and budgets of tactical medicine. Lastly, there was a statistically significant relationship between advanced medical personnel who regularly train with their tactical teams. Liability protections were provided for paramedics and only half the time to basic-level EMTs. The study suggested a need for collaborative training between police and paramedics with defined perimeter zones during deployments. Implications for positive social change include integrating medical expertise onto tactical operations, which can conceivably save the lives of police officers and the general public.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The problem was that the Oak Creek Fire Department (OCFD) had not worked with the Oak Creek Police Department (OCPD) and the Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District (OC-FJSD) to reinforce an emergency response plan for tactical, mass casualty incidents in its K-12 schools. The purpose of this research was to identify response issues for tactical, mass casualty incidents in OC-FJSD K-12 schools. Using a descriptive methodology, this applied research project answered the following questions: 1. What type of emergency response do OC-FJSD employees expect of the OCFD? 2. Do OC-FJSD employees have the required skills to initiate care during a tactical, mass casualty incident while waiting for emergency first responders? 3. How do OCPD officers perceive the OCFD's medical response to tactical, mass casualty incidents? 4. How do OCFD firefighters perceive the OCFD's medical response to tactical, mass casualty incidents? 5. Does the OCFD have the training and equipment that is needed for tactical, mass casualty incidents involving K-12 schools? The procedures involved the analysis of 203 feedback responses from fire department, police department, and school district employees. The respondents provided personal perspective to a multi-faceted emergency response. The results indicated that school district employees accept the need for firefighter/paramedic safety but they also expect a quick response to the medical needs of victims. Most school district employees do not have the required skills to initiate patient care. OCPD and OCFD have contrasting views of emergency medical care and the role of a firefighter in tactical incidents. Further, firefighters do not possess the requisite skills and equipment needed for mass casualty incidents in K-12 schools. The recommendation was to have OCFD, OCPD and OC-FJSD develop a collaborative incident action plan. School district employees must be trained in first aid and combat care. And changes to the response plan should culminate in a joint exercise.

Tactical emergency medical support (TEMS) protocols: prehospital emergency medical care protocols

Author(s):Department of Homeland Security.
Description: 201 p.
Publication Data:Washington, DC : The Department. April 2009

Type of Item: (BOOK) BOOK
Subjects:1. TACTICAL EMERGENCY MEDICAL SUPPORT 2. EMERGENCY MEDICAL CARE 3. PROTOCOLS
Summary/abstract:
  • Tactical medical care providers are expected to provide prehospital care in dangerous environments with little or no support when operational security is a consideration. They may also encounter situations where communication is not assured and evacuation may be delayed significantly. The Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) Field Guide is intended to supplement the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and /or paramedic's protocols in the areas of tactical emergency medical care and force health protection. The driving factors in TEMS are three-fold: (1) Mission; (2) Overall Team Health; a. Self-care; b. Buddy care; c. Team care; (3) Protection of: a. Team members; b. Victims/Hostages; c. Bystanders; d. Perpetrators. The care provider in the tactical situation may be forced to improvise and adapt his or her medical procedures based on situational factors in order to provide care for and prepare the patient for evacuation to a safer environment. This guide, in conjunction with the best practices learned in standard EMT/paramedic protocols, is intended to support the care provider's efforts to provide pre-hospital life support until the patient can be transferred and given definitive care. DISCLAIMER: The TEMS field guide is intended to serve only as suggested best practices. Medical providers are strongly encouraged to follow the protocols contained in the TEMS field guide and should consider doing so in whole or in part if his/her training or experience is sufficient to implement the suggested best practices effectively.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The integration of Tactical Emergency Medical Services into law enforcement special operations is becoming more common throughout this country. These personnel are often drawn from fire department ranks given their common public safety responsibility, their training in emergency medicine and their experience in providing emergency care in various environments. Such programs allow emergency medical responders prompt access to patients who may be in need of immediate medical intervention. The Salt Lake City Fire Department currently has no established program to provide tactically trained emergency medical personnel (EMS) to SWAT members, patrol officers, or members of the public in SWAT or active shooting incidents. In the interest of public safety, Salt Lake City Fire Department needs to provide trained tactical medical personnel as an integral element to any Salt Lake City Police Department tactical operation. The purpose of the following research was to identify and provide both Salt Lake City Police and Salt Lake City Fire with a practical means to provide tactical EMS service to police department operations during these types of responses. Action research will be used to answer the following questions: A) How do other agencies effectively integrate tactical EMS (TEMS) into their operations? B) What are the parameters of the training? C) What are the common obstacles to such programs?; D) What type of TEMS program would be most beneficial to Salt Lake City? A simple survey was used to generate data regarding the existence of such programs and their basic organization. Public safety organizations of similar size to Salt Lake were solicited to provide relevant data that was valuable in the development of a program for Salt Lake City Fire Department. The results indicated a significant percentage of public safety organizations integrate the two disciplines in varied models. Recommendations incorporated this data into a practical two-phase plan that would address the need for both SWAT medics and TEMS trained firefighters who may be the first responders to this type of incident.

Summary/abstract:
  • The problem was that the Yuba City Fire Department's Tactical Emergency Medical Services (TEMS) personnel are placed in potentially hostile environments during Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) operations without any defensive capabilities. The purpose of this research project was to assess what is the appropriate level of defensive capability for TEMS personnel during these operations. This project was undertaken because of an incident where TEMS personnel were placed in a hostile environment with no protection. To accomplish this task, descriptive research was used to answer the following questions: 1. What are the expected duties to be performed by TEMS personnel during tactical operations? 2. What is the best location for TEMS personnel during a tactical incident? 3. What is an appropriate level of defensive capability for TEMS personnel during a tactical incident? The procedures used to accomplish this research included a literature review, a survey, personnel interviews and a search of the World Wide Web. The results showed that the minimal level of acceptable care that should be provided during tactical incidents is Basic Life Support (BLS). The research also showed that there were two areas to provide medical support, the inner and outer perimeter of an incident. Additional, most agencies do not provide self-defense capabilities for their TEMS members, but when they do, it is in the form of a handgun. Recommended by the research was to continue to provide BLS support in the inner perimeter and use a phased approach to providing self-defense capabilities to TEMS personnel.
