South Central Healthcare Coalition is pleased to offer Rescue Task Force training to partners in our region, free of charge. Training is provided by Mercyhealth Emergency Medical Services Training Center.
Historically, medical care was not provided to victims until law enforcement secured the scene. This practice is being replaced by Rescue Task Force (RTF), a patient-centric and life-saving approach.
RTF is an aggressive response to an active shooter incident that provides rapid medical treatment at the point of injury to those who are injured. It is a joint response between police, fire and EMS agencies, but can be adapted to any agency, large or small, rural or urban. This training is ideal for front line EMS personnel and law enforcement officers. With basic understanding of language, roles and movements, trained persons will finish the class with a functional understanding and ability to perform this task.
Training will be delivered in five different locations throughout our region. Class size is limited to 100 students for the lecture component and 50 students for the hands-on component. Those taking the hands on portion must also take the lecture portion. Registration is first come, first served, however, priority registration will be given to first responders for the hands-on component.
Hands On: 1-5PM
Lunch is on your own.
