Originating from lessons learned in Active Shooter situations, the TECC presents the three phases of tactical care and integrates parallel EMS nomenclature:
Hot Zone/Direct Threat Care
 Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.

Warm Zone/Indirect Threat Care 
Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed but may resurface at any point.

Cold Zone/Evacuation Care 
Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site. 

The 16-hour classroom based course includes all new patient simulations and covers the following topics:
Hemorrhage control including immediate action drills for tourniquet application throughout the course
Complete coverage of the MARCH assessment
Surgical airway control and needle decompression
Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments
Caring for pediatric patients
Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety
A final, mass-casualty/active shooter event simulation

NAEMT's TECC course is endorsed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma, is consistent with the current guidelines established by the Committee on TECC (Co-TECC), and meets all of the updated National Tactical Emergency Medical Support Competency Domains. This course is accredited by CAPCE for 16 hours of continuing education credit, and recognized by NREMT.
