Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) / Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)
SIERRA IMTS with collaboration from our partner in the United States is proud to bring you the Tactical Combat Casualty Care program.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) is a medical training program discussing actions on contact and treatment of combat related trauma casualties. This program gives tactical operators and gun fighters a better chance to survive deadly encounter.
TCCC was developed in the 1990’s by the Naval Special Warfare Group Operators. The TCCC curriculum is under constant review and is updated on a regular basis. It is now taught to all special operations and nearly all United States conventional ground forces prior to deployment.
The specifics of casualty care in the tactical setting will depend on the tactical situation, the injuries sustained by the casualty, the knowledge and skills of the first responder, and the medical equipment at hand. In contrast to a hospital Emergency Department setting where the patient is the mission, on the battlefield, care of casualties sustained is only PART of the mission. TCCC recognizes this fact and structures its guidelines to accomplish three primary goals:
1. Treat the casualty
2. Prevent additional casualties
3. Complete the mission
