We’ve reached a time and place within our society where the question is no longer if this will occur but rather when it will occur. We must employ best practices to protect our own while reaching critically wounded victims sooner for a greater chance of survival. This program will range through response, tactics, and the integration of Fire, EMS and Law Enforcement.

Some of the topics: Review of Mass Casualty Incidents,  Tools & resources,  Casualty collection,  Force protection and entry groups Utilization of ballistic gear, ICS for Active Shooter Incidents,   Case studies with discussion and Command staff roundtable.
