SWAT Medics aka Tactical EMS Operators have gained so much more prominence in daily operations.
In its infancy, Tactical Emergency Medical Services (TEMS) was made up of a bunch of EMS pros from so many different backgrounds.
These days, I’m glad to see my training has paid off and TEMS Operators are respected by their peers in the Fire/EMS Service, but as well as Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs).
Heck, even my friends at the FBI has many trained TEMS Operators.
Tactical EMS Operators (aka SWAT Medics) are a critical piece of a successful Emergency Medical Service operation.
Thank your local Tactical EMS pros for a job well done!
