Patrol Response to Active Shooter w/ballistic shield & TEMS integration

In law enforcement circles, the ballistic shield, by its nature, has been deployed primarily as a “defensive tool”.  Heavy, cumbersome and with a limited view to the environment, has propagated the mindset and thought processes that the ballistic shield is more of a hindrance than an asset.  NOTHING could be further from the truth!  Advances in ballistic technology have led to the development of a new breed of shields that are smaller, lighter and easier to maneuver in a myriad of applications.   This six (6) hour block of instruction is directed at police fire and EMS personnel working together to rescue and treat injured in a active killer situation. This patrol based shield class will enhance the safety of all officers involved in these operations.

This will be a lecture and hands-on class.

Equipment needed:

Full kit, law enforcement belt, helmet (if issued)

The role of civilian EMS during Terrorism incidents

This four hour block will showcase lessons learned from Israel.  In the small confined territorial area of Israel the lines between civilian and military medical services sometimes get blurred.  In times of conflict, when most men are drafted to their combat units, medical personnel may be drafted to augment EMS services.  Rockets being fired from combat zone into civilian communities require specialized response by extremely well trained and capable medical personnel.  These medics must respond to scenes of blasts, shooting, mental health emergencies while potentially still under direct hostile threat.  Command and control elements, and the formation of a unified command center that includes not only all first responders on scene (Fire, EMS, Police, Civil engineers, etc.), but also military command element, plays major part in the proper interaction of all elements involved. The lecture will include case studies, lessons learned, best practices, and tools that can be applied to American EMS and Tac-Med components in mass casualty incidents, terror events, and other disasters where interaction between EMS and security forces, be it police, military or other, may be imminent.

How did the victims perceive the response? How did the agencies take care of their responders after the incident and what was the after action response?
