K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (K9 TECC)

Established in 2014, the K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (K9 TECC) Initiative working group was developed under the auspice of the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (www.c-tecc.org) with the intent of developing best practice prehospital care guidelines for Operational K9s injured in the Line of Duty.

The K9-TECC working group extracts available evidence-based medicine, lessons learned from MWD combat casualties, and end-user experience from the front line to develop best practice recommendations for out-of-hospital care for the injured Operational K9 (OpK9). K9-TECC principles focus on interventions that eliminate the major preventable causes of death and that are affordable, sustainable, and require minimal training and resources. Similar to human TECC guidelines (available at c-tecc.org), K9 TECC principles are incorporated into three dynamic phases of care: Direct Threat Care (DTC)/Hot Zone, Indirect Threat Care (ITC)/Warm Zone, and Evacuation (EVAC)/ Cold Zone.

What would you do?
If your best friend or K9 partner were hit by a car, wounded in a horrific incident like the Boston Marathon bombin, bitten by another dog or poisoned by an ill-intentioned neighbor...

No one wants to think about our K9s bleeding to death before our eyes from a bullet or stab wound, or struggling to breath after being hit by a car, or acting “weird” because they’ve ingested something that is in the process of killing them from the inside. We can ‘hope’ this never happens or prepare for the worst and save a life in the direst of circumstances.

Train for the worst because ‘hope’ is not a plan.

These courses are intense!
K911 was designed to provide lifesaving care at the point of injury to our beloved K9s. Our courses are about stopping the death spiral from catastrophic injuries so you can buy them the time they need to get to a qualified veterinarian.

K911 is NOT how to pull splinters out of paws.  K911 is about K9s surviving otherwise deadly wounds so they are alive and viable when you get them to a veterinarian.

Tons of Hands On!
We teach, we train, we drill, we drill, we drill! Learn to operate under extreme stress and train like our military’s special operations forces.  Our courses use a progressive stress training system to program your frog brain to perform when your intellectual brain is overwhelmed.
 
Your Success is Our Priority
Whether you’re a K9-Cop, Search and Rescue handler, or civilian whose dog is a member of your family, if you feel you cannot perform the skills you learn in our courses while under the worst of conditions and highest of stress, you can repeat our courses free of charge until you can. 

It’s not about you, it’s about your best friend. http://www.k911tacticalcare.com

EMS - Always There. Any Time. Any Where.

emsweek3.jpg

I trained in EMS a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Okay, not really, but it was the 1970's in New Jersey, so it sometimes feels like that.

We were on the leading edge of the evolution from those we affectionately called 'lead-footed ambulance drivers' to EMS professionals. We were trained first-aiders armed with O2, bandages, and a defibrillator. Now, EMS professionals assess, triage, and provide essential life-saving medical care in homes, at roadsides, and in austere environments. 

Throughout the years, our ambulance drivers, first-aiders, EMTs and paramedics volunteered long hours and sleepless nights taking care of the needs of our communities. They've missed holidays and special events with their loved ones, committed to help working with their family of emergency care and first responders.

This week we join NAEMT and countless other organizations to ensure the important contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety and well-being of their communities are fully celebrated and recognized.

Thank you for your time and dedication. Thank you for your compassion and commitment. Thank you for risking your safety, for your bravery. Thank you for being at the ready to help 24/7, 365 days a year.

VetReaLifeSim IV Trainer Team Recognizes Military Dogs as Heroes

Dogs have been in combat with US soldiers during every major conflict, but they were not officially recognized until WWII. By the start of WWII, the military had recognized the value canine soldiers could bring and began using them primarily for recon.

Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX has been training sentry dogs since 1958. K9history.com details the manpower and dogpower that goes into training the amazing pups of the Department of Defense Military Working Dogs Training School (DoD MWD) at Lackland. Today, more than 1,000 dogs are trained at any given time by a staff of 125 from all branches of military service. The complex training techniques are designed to utilize the dogs’ natural gifts for focus and aggression to their advantage. German Shepherds and Labradors can detect weapons, bombs, gases and drugs more accurately than any available military equipment.

  In Rebecca Frankel’s book,    War Dogs   she explores the remarkable bond that develops between service dog and handler. One such pair was Marine Lance Corporal Joshua Ashley and “Sirius”. They were the number one team during training at Yuma military base, but tragically Josh was killed by an IED just two months after deploying to Afghanistan. “Sirius” at first refused to take commands from his new handler and showed significant signs of agitation at the loss of his partner. Such stories are all too common among canine and handler teams.

Just like their human brothers and sisters in arms, K-9 soldiers are susceptible to the horrors of PTSD. War dogs experience severe emotional trauma during deployment, and for some it becomes too much. If that happens, they are declared “surplus” by the military and released from service. 

These heroes were thrown away or put down instead of honored. President Clinton passed “Robby’s Law” in 2000 which allows handlers and their families first dibs at adopting military animals at the end of their useful service. The dogs are next offered to law enforcement, then adoptive families. It is not uncommon for a military family to adopt a combat veteran K-9 and currently there are waiting lists of civilian families ready to adopt and love these heroes.

VetReaLifeSim IV Trainer Team Recognizes Police K-9s

K9-Boyd-and-Cain.jpg

Ongoing military operations, escalating domestic active shooter/terrorist events, and natural disasters contribute to an increase in demand for elite K-9 operators throughout the world. Unfortunately, the increased utilization of K-9s in tactical and high-threat environments also increases the risk for K-9 line-of-duty injuries and deaths.

"Despite the impact K9s provide in safeguarding our society’s freedoms, large gaps in veterinary and K9 prehospital trauma care (e.g., standardized guidelines, funding, training, logistical resources, research, etc.) remain a challenge. In general, veterinary-specific out-of-hospital emergency medical services are not readily available. Licensed veterinary personnel don't routinely deploy as part of teams during high-threat situations. And, using EMS services for injured K-9s is hindered by EMS scope of practice statutes and language in each state’s veterinary practice act (VPA) that defines the requirements for practicing veterinary medicine." Source: An Introduction to K9 Tactical Emergency Casualty Care, L. Palmer, DVM, NRAEMT-T. 8.2016

As a result, out-of-hospital point-of-injury care for injured K-9s was grossly lacking. Today, K-9 handlers and EMS providers have more options to receive training in basic K-9 first aid and trauma care. 

According to current K-9 TECC guidelines gaining intravascular access is an indirect threat warm zone skill set: "If evacuation to definitive care is more than 30 minutes, consider placing an 18g IV catheter in at least one peripheral vein (cephalic on either of the front legs is preferred.)"

VetReaLifeSim IV Trainers provide opportunities to safely “treat” live animals or animal simulators practicing hands-on techniques and interaction skills in any environment, contributing to the most realistic training scenarios possible. VetReaLifeSim IV Trainers provide for realistic practice to provide medical services to K-9s injured in the field, often in austere, treacherous, and/or hostile environments.

Thanks to our K-9 Operators and the dogs during Police Week!
