What Does the TAC Training Class Teach?

Tactical First Aid (TFA)™ is a method and set of techniques that offers individuals in high-risk, emergency situations a way to provide basic care for life-threatening injuries to both themselves and others when no trained medical help is immediately available. TFA courses combine lecture with hands-on training and are supplemented by the Tactical First Aid (TFA)™ book. A Tactical First Aid (TFA)™ Kit is sold separately.

The Training is Based on Military Tactical Combat Casualty Care

(TC3) and Covers the Following Concepts:

It can happen in a moment: A random shooting in a movie theater, an accident while practicing at a shooting range, a penetrating injury while working on a job site. The fact is many (too many) individuals will suddenly find themselves in a life-threatening or “hot” situation. When you or somebody else has been severely injured and skilled medical help is minutes or hours away, knowing how to recognize and stabilize traumatic injuries can buy much needed time in those first critical minutes when action counts most. TFAs training in rapid assessment and intervention methods for tourniquet, bandage, and seal placement can bring a feeling of confidence and competence that is empowering and reassuring to anyone.  It is our hope that the tools and techniques in this course will become the standard for pre-first response in a dangerous and rapidly evolving world.
