ALLENTOWN, NJ (MONMOUTH)–Yesterday Robbinsville Township Fire Department’s A-platoon joined other agencies from across the state in Allentown NJ and attended a tactical EMS class put on by Emergency Education & Development, LLC of Edgewater Park NJ; titled Tactical Emergency Casualty Care.
This class incorporates combat style military care and civilian EMS operations to prepare responders to respond to Active Shooter/Hostile Incidents as part of a Rescue Task Force concept. The instructors were Firefighters, EMTs, Paramedics and Police Officers with over 100 years of emergency service experience.
Students were faced with real life scenarios with “causalities” mocked up looking like real life injuries and face real life skill stations while wearing ballistic person protective gear such as mock tactical vests with ballistic helmets.
