  • COMMITTEE FOR TACTICAL EMERGENCY CASUALTY CARE (LEESBURG, VA)

    The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) exists to develop and accelerate evidenced and best practiced-based guidance for medical response and treatment of the injured during high risk and atypical civilian operational scenarios. These incidents include tragedies such as Active Shooter, Fire Used as a Weapon, and Complex Attacks that require additional capabilities by public safety and medical providers. The goals of C-TECC: to balance the threat against true risks to life, promote an appropriate scope of practice, recognize differences in the whole community population, highlight medical equipment limits and recognize the variability of resources required for response to atypical emergencies. C-TECC establishes a framework that balances the risk benefit ratio for all civilian operational medical response, provides guidance on medical management of preventable deaths at or near the point of wounding and attempts to minimize provider risk while maximizing patient benefit. C-TECC, a non-profit mission focused organization, is comprised of a broad range of interagency operational and academic leaders in the practice of high threat medicine from across the nation, including members from the fire/rescue, emergency medicine, law enforcement, education, military and emergency medical services communities.
