Rescue Task Force incorporates a more patient-centric approach focused on life-saving during a mass casualty event (MCI). RTF and tactical medics supplant the old paradigm where EMS stands by until all is clear. RTF members are outfitted with ballistic vests, ballistic helmets, other protective gear, and are equipped with multi-person medical treatment modules. Rescue Task Force are specifically trained and equipped to deal with violence-induced trauma.
