The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care used the military battlefield guidelines of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) as an evidenced based starting point in the development of civilian specific medical guidelines for high threat operations. Each phase and medical recommendation of the military TCCC guidelines was examined and discussed by the Committee, and then was re-written, annotated, or removed through consensus voting of the Guidelines Committee to create civilian specific, civilian appropriate guidance. Additionally, the Committee added and/or put specific emphasis on several medical recommendations not included in TCCC to address high threat operational aspects unique to civilian operations.
Active Bystander – Empowered community members, who are present in the event but not so severely injured that they cannot assist others, can serve a critical role during the initial moments after complex and dynamic disasters. They must have immediate access to severely injured victims and can provide time-sensitive, life-saving interventions; they are the first link in the trauma chain of survival.
- Treatment of traumatic injuries including gunshot wounds, stabbings, and blast injuries.
- Ongoing care and management of patients.
