Hartford Consensus

Since April 2012, a hard working group has taken on the development of new guidelines 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) guidelines. These guidelines 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.
