Single Source Solution

Rescue Essentials, your Single Source Solution for Tactical Emergency Medical Supplies, Combat Casualty Treatments, and purpose-built kits for austere and urban environments.

Serving the TEMS, Wilderness, and Emergency Medical Communities Since 1991 with Emergency Medical Supplies, and providing Quality Custom Kits for Combat Medics, Tactical Law Enforcement, Wilderness Medics, and personnel deployed to high-threat areas.

Hartford Consensus

Since April 2012, a hard working group has taken on the development of new protocols for responding to active shooter scenarios. The upshot of this effort has been a strong consensus that LEOs, who are usually first on scene, should be prepared with equipment and training to save lives and stabilize critically injured victims, particularly those at risk of exsanguination (bleeding out). Rescue Essentials is on the forefront, developing kits and configurations that lend to the applications recommended in the Hartford Consensus.    

TEMS (Tactical Emergency Medical Support)

Lessons that have been learned at great cost in the combat arena, have been formulated as Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) protocols. These protocols are now being adapted to Law Enforcement, Wilderness Medicine, EMS and even Home Medical use. The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) is making great strides toward implementing the benefits that can be taken from the lessons of combat, and we enthusiastically support their effort. The concept of deploying tactical personnel who have emergency medical training is a relatively new idea, but one that is now enthusiastically embraced within law enforcement and fire-fighting communities.

TEMS operators are trained to employ the latest technologies and procedures to come out of the extreme requirements of today’s combat troops. Self-care, buddy care, and basic life support functions like burn treatment and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation are now being taught to such operators, and the life saving results are already evident. Many Law Enforcement agencies are adopting TCCC guidelines, as modified per C-TECC recommendations. Many emergency medical products originally invented for field use are gaining greater and greater acceptance at all levels of emergency medical care. Rescue Essentials is dedicated to enabling every Government Agency, every law enforcement entity, every outdoor adventurer and every emergency response trainer, to take full advantage of the medical advances that have come at such high human cost.

If you are involved with tactical medicine, combat medicine, wilderness medicine, emergency triage or any other form of pre-hospital care, Rescue Essentials is your source for the latest in EMS supplies.

Read what some of our Single Source Solution customers have to say about their use of this service:

Wilderness Medicine Institute Custom Designed Kits

"We are delighted with our relationship with Rescue Essentials. Rescue Essentials designs and packs our Wilderness First Responder FA Kit, our wound packs, and our FA restock kits. A few years back we were switching companies in order to get more custom service, better pricing, and more follow-through. Rescue Essentials comes through on all counts, and they back up their promises."

Edward Hanfman, WMI Equipment and Retail Manager
Gates Richards, WMI EMT Program Director / Special Projects Manager

Boy Scouts of America - Northern Tier Kit

"As an outdoorsman, scout leader and first aid instructor, Rescue Essentials has become my “go to” source for first aid supplies. Their prices are great, their shipping is cheap, their products are superior and their customer service is unbeatable.  When our scout troop was planning a trip to the Northern Tier canoe base, they custom designed kits for our crews that met the Northern Tier recommendations.  They have all the conveniences of a web-based store, but have real, knowledgeable people to talk to when you need them.  I recommend them highly."

 Matt Woodruff-BSA Scout Leader

National Outdoor Leadership School Field Medical Kit

"The custom designed kits built for us by Rescue Essentials work well for NOLS. NOLS field instructors appreciate that the kits contain what they actually use in the field."

 Tod Schimelpfenig - Risk Management, NOLS

St. Louis County Police Department
