North American Rescue Announces Acquisition Of JTM Training Group

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Greer, SC (February 5, 2018) North American Rescue, LLC (NAR) is pleased to announce the acquisition of JTM Training Group (JTM) from Las Vegas, NV. JTM has over 20 years of experience providing tactical and medical training to military, law enforcement, EMS, and first responder personnel.

JTM Training Group has a strong history of offering premium evidence-based medicine education and training solutions for military and first responders. As a leader in their industry, they have been offering online EMT certification/re-certification courses since 2006 and are considered one of the most trusted online EMT providers in the world. Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) courses are also available, providing hands-on combat medical training that adheres to the TCCC Standardization Guidelines. Finally, their team of experienced and knowledgeable instructors enables them to provide customized opportunities for immersive, scenario-driven courses that are tailored to meet mission-specific requirements.

This broad range of training capabilities makes JTM an ideal addition to the NAR company goal of providing “products with a mission.” NAR has long recognized that successful life-saving treatment may begin with the right equipment, but the key elements of education to know when to use and training to know how to use that gear are requisites for desirable outcomes.

“North American Rescue has always been committed to equipping the warfighter and first responders with what they need to save lives,” said Robert Castellani, CEO of North American Rescue, LLC. “We are pleased to bring the JTM team onboard. For years we have been asked for training opportunities by customers of our premium products. We are confident that JTM’s solutions will enable us to exceed expectations for leading-edge education and training experiences and that the options of online, in-person, or even mobile training events will provide accessibility to premium training that meets and exceeds requirements.”

JTM Training Group will be changing their name to “North American Rescue Education and Training” (NAR Training), and will transition to new branding during the second quarter of 2018. Their website will remain fully functional, and courses will continue to be run and offered throughout the transition.

North American Rescue – Clarius Wireless Ultrasound Scanner

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Of all of the items I saw at last week’s Marine South Expo at Camp Lejeune, NC, the visit to North American Rescue impressed me most. They shared the Clarius Wireless Premium Ultrasound Scanners with me, which bring ultrasound imaging to austere environments.

They had two models, the C3 which is for use in Convex applications and the L7 which is for Linear applications. The devices are wireless and connect to handheld Andriod and iOS devices via Bluetooth. There are apps for either OS and their use is quite intuitive. Additionally, you can share the images live, with other handheld devices within range, making this a good option for teaching scenarios. Naturally, the battery operated Clarissa can also be used in remote/forward areas thanks to its sealed magnesium shell that is both durable and waterproof up to 30 minutes at 1meter immersion depth.

First, the technician selects the device.

Next, the technician chooses what will be imaged.

-High-quality resolution without any wires
-Convex or Linear Probe operates at 2-6 MHz for 3-30cm depth
-Operates on virtually any Smart device operating on iOS or Android platforms
-Superior materials and construction making it lightweight, rugged and waterproof for up to 30 minutes at 1m immersion
-Automated settings (gain and frequency) make usage effortless
-Designed to scan all parts of a patient’s torso, including the heart

Marine South – North American Rescue

Thursday, April 10th, 2014


New TCCC guidelines recommend the use of a vented chest seal for tension pneumothorax. In response, North American Rescue has introduced the HyFin Vent chest seal twin pack. It is a modification of their standard HyFin chest seal.


The 3-channel design ensures that 1 channel is always pointing down.


SOMA – NARescue

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

With the curtailing of live tissue training for the US military, SOMA was wall-to-wall manikins. But for me, one stuck out. North American Rescue has developed a full line of Combat Trauma Simulators that replicate typical injuries experienced on the modern battlefield. Developed by a former Combat Trauma Surgeon, the line consists of five hyper-realistic manikins that simulate different wounding patterns, ranging from facial trauma to amputation. Each manikin is anatomically correct, featuring a five liter blood reservoir in the chest for bleeding. The internal skeleton is supported by airplane cable and an untethered remote control system regulates simulated breathing and other signs of life. Each manikin has Dragon Skin (not the armor system) a rugged silicone based material that also demonstrates realistic tactile response. The manikins are water resistant, making difficult training situations like inclement weather possible. Training capabilities include tourniquet application, wound packing, burn treatments and bowel evisceration.
