TECC focuses on the medicine during these phases of care and provides guidelines for managing trauma in the civilian tactical or hazardous environment. While TECC has a tactical slant, it takes an all-hazards approach to providing care outside the normal operating conditions of most EMS agencies, such as responding to a mass casualty or active shooter event.
At the core of the TECC program are three distinct phases that have been well-proven by TCCC-trained personnel in the war against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. The phases are as follows:
Direct Threat Care – Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
Indirect Threat Care – Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point.
Evacuation – Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.
