Charlotte, NC (Feb. 19, 2016) – Today, SOARescue, in partnership with multiple organizations, officially announces the National Tactical Medicine Competition (NTMC). This competition is being held on Sunday, May 22nd in Charlotte, NC at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fire and Police Training Academy (1770 Shopton Rd, Charlotte, NC 28217).

The National Tactical Medicine Competition is an event created to allow tactical medical providers from around the country the opportunity to collaborate and compete in a community of peers. Civilian Tactical Medicine is a relatively new discipline within the world of pre-hospital medicine. Together with The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, we are creating opportunities to increase awareness, collaboration and training. This competition is a great opportunity to bring like-minded individuals together and support a cause greater than self.
The National Tactical Medicine Competition is based on the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care guidelines and all simulated patient care will be in line with the currently approved guidelines. The Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC.org) endorses the NTMC.

Proceeds from the Competition will benefit C-TECC and the improvement of tactical medical care and education.

Teams of two competitors will negotiate through a series of events to challenge both clinical and physical abilities. While the “lanes”, as they are called, will be agnostic to provider level, they will require competency and skill to negotiate successfully. Competitors will proceed through the phases of care. Beginning at direct threat care, minimal treatment is performed but physical ability will be required to move the patient. Teams will transition to indirect threat care where they will be expected to further treat the patient and prepare for evacuation. Following, teams will evacuate the patient to a given location and continue to provide care during evacuation. Teams will then have to continue through specialized skill sets found only in tactical medicine.

The Mission of the Competition is simple, To Preserve Life. Through friendly competition among peers in a community of professionals, competitors and observers alike will all be able to take something away from this unique event.

Competition – Networking – Training – Fellowship

The Competition will consist of 15 two man teams and will be held over 8 hours on May 22nd 2016. Banquet to follow.
