Tactical Medics

Tactical Medics are paramedics that perform with both law enforcement personnel and emergency personnel. A tactical incident response, such as a barricaded suspect, presents unique challenges to law enforcement personnel and for the personnel providing emergency medical care and support services in that environment.

Tactical medical care providers must have a clear understanding of and consideration for law enforcement response, tactics, and the mission-specific objectives of a tactical operation when planning for and providing medical support.

Metro Fire’s tactical medics have attended approved tactical medicine training programs in order to provide this support. Currently Metro Fire personnel provide Tactical Medical Support to the Sacramento Sheriff, Citrus Heights Police Department, and FBI Swat Teams.
