How Can NFPA 3000 Help Improve Public Safety
In Our Communities?

Public Safety Integration Training - Awareness Level

Active violence events have resulted in numerous civilian casualties and captured the attention of the nation. These horrific and calculated acts have dramatically impacted countless individuals and communities by instilling fear that such events can unpredictably occur in urban, suburban, rural and metropolitan areas.

Despite evolving threats, many public safety organizations throughout the country have yet to develop response paradigms to meet these challenges. Instructed by members of the Law Enforcement / Fire / EMS Communities, this highly interactive, 2-day mobile training team course (MTT) will deconstruct the nature of these threats as well as offer awareness-level integrated point-of- wound care instruction specifically focused on dynamic active violence, all-hazards and/or explosive threats. This course is in accordance with the Principles of Guidelines Instruction set by the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care and is specifically targeted for law enforcement and fire / EMS organizations who want to proactively develop integrated response strategies to mitigate the impact a violent mass casualty incident can have on their community. This workshop is recognized by both the Arizona Center for Fire Service Excellence (AzCFSE) and Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training (AZPOST) Committees, and reflects the current NFPA 3000 guidelines.

Explosive Recognition and Safety Training
 - Awareness Level

The Explosive Recognition and Safety Course is a dynamic, multifaceted program instructed by experienced Federal, State and Local Bomb Technicians. It is open to Public Safety professionals, who will be provided with instruction covering explosive effects, response considerations, and the recognition of explosive components. The focus of instruction will be in relation to the following topics: Commercial Explosives, Homemade Explosives (HME), Hazardous Material Considerations, Improvised Initiators, Commercial Initiators, Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s), Suicide/ Homicide IED’s, Vehicle-Born Improvised Explosive Devices, Blast Injuries, and Search Techniques. Lectures will be supplemented by photos, videos, handouts, and classroom discussion. Emphasis will be placed on Time, Distance, and Shielding: The three largest components of surviving an explosive threat or event. Following didactic instruction, the students will apply what they have learned by participating in various, realistic scenarios. This will allow for the application of tactics learned during the classroom portion. Depending on the facilities obtained for training and the potential for group discipline variations, scenarios may vary.

Course Participants will receive 8 Hours AZPOST Credit, 8 Hours Medical CEs, and an ICSAVE Training Certificate


Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC)

ICSAVE is its own fully functioning medical training center and has an entire cadre of certified instructors trained to provide these life-saving courses for little to NO COST. Contact us direct at info@icsave.org

Developed by NAEMT’s Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) Committee, the TECC program is based on the guidelines from the Committee on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (Co-TECC) and the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) program. TECC uses lessons learned from our military and applies them to the civilian world of tactical medicine.

This 16-hour course covers topics designed to decrease preventable death in the tactical situation. Topics include: Hemorrhage control; surgical airway control and needle decompression; strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; caring for pediatric patients; and techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.

At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. The phases are as follows:

  • Direct Threat Care
    • Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
  • Indirect Threat Care
    • Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.
  • Evacuation
    • Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.

TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the normal operating conditions of most EMS agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event.


TECC For Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders (TECC-LEO) 

ICSAVE is its own fully functioning medical training center and has an entire cadre of certified instructors trained to provide these life-saving courses for little to NO COST. Contact us direct at info@icsave.org

This course will be available in Summer 2019

8-hour course specifically designed for non-EMS first responders. The course covers materials found in the 16-hour provider course at a level appropriate for first responders. Topics include hemorrhage control, rescue tactics, and scenario-based training. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card recognizing them as a TECC-LEO provider for 4 years, and 8 hours of CAPCE credit.

The course combines the principles of PHTLS and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), with the training provided to military medics by all branches of our Armed Services. It is consistent with the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines, and meets the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus Document on Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.

Course participants will learn life-saving medical actions such as bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe.

Upon completion of the course participants will:

  • Understand the rationale for immediate steps for hemorrhage control (including external hemorrhage control, direct pressure and wound packing, early use of tourniquet for severe hemorrhage, internal hemorrhage control by rapid evacuation, and transportation to major hospital/trauma center.
  • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg.
  • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage.
  • Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices.
  • Demonstrate the correct application of a topical hemostatic dressing (combat gauze).
  • Recognize the tactically relevant indicators of shock.

Public Safety-EOD Integration

In order to effectively prevent or mitigate the harm from modern Asymmetric Threats, the law enforcement, fire service and EMS communities must better prepare for tomorrow’s evolving challenges. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), for example, are becoming a larger and more significant threat. The effective integration of public safety and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) capabilities to deliberately or dynamically address IEDs before, during and after tactical operations has proven critical to mission success.

ICSAVE’s Public Safety-EOD Integration Training bridges the gap between Tactical Operations, the Fire Service, EMS and EOD Operators through interoperability skills training.

The focal point of this training encompasses the integration of various specialized Public Safety resources to effectively respond to IEDs in both tactical and non-tactical settings. Attendees will participate in classroom study and practical exercises intended to reinforce operational principles, enhance specialized skill sets, and operational planning for tactical operations in IED threat environments.

Course Participants will receive 16 Hours AZPOST Credit, 16 Hours Medical CEs and an ICSAVE Training Certificate
