This 40-hour course will prepare the attendee to teach the First responder role in an active assailant/mass casualty event. It will help the officer develop their own understanding of foundational concepts and tactics employed for a more successful resolution in quickly evolving critical incidents. The focus on the course is the coordination of the LE/EMS response, specifically the Rescue Task Force concept. At the end of the course, LE will have a greater understanding of how EMS will support their role, and how they will support the EMS role in a mass casualty event. EMS will better understand how they can support law enforcement in the initial phases of an incident and provide care quicker, while maintaining safety. Students will “cross-learn” duties and responsibilities to introduce and teach to their home agencies.
But more than just giving first responders tools for an improbable incident, and tools they will never use, this course shows how to incorporate movement, team tactics, and critical incident decision making into everyday activities. The student will learn how to present information to their agencies which will benefit the responders in their daily work experience.
The material learned will make first responders safer in their normal workday, it will make citizens safer, as responders will be more skilled and confident in their abilities, and they will better retain critical information needed for an unlikely event.
This course will operate in a combined discipline setting as well as breakout sessions specific to LE and EMS. Provisions are built in to provide numerous teaching opportunities for new instructors to “get their feet under themselves”.
Deescalation and communication training is a foundation in all our tactical courses
Law enforcement and EMS components will learn much of this material together, but will also learn material specific to their role in breakout sessions during the week. Students will have numerous opportunities during the course to teach back the material they have learned.

We Don't Do T-Shirts...
We know T Shirts are great gifts to get from trainings, but you can't prop a door, pull a door, flag your gun barrel for training, take notes, and chalk out your hostage rescue floor plan with a T shirt.
All attendees receive these items for their tactical kit.
Each day of class, we do a raffle to give away more useful gear.
useful training, useful swag
Training Our Community Guardians
Training is critical to performance "under fire", or in the field. We believe that you don't rise to the level of the occasion, you sink to the level of your training. Our instructor programs are designed to provide students with the knowledge to impart vital information so it will be received, learned, internalized, and implemented when it counts. As with all ONYX courses, this one is founded on human-centered, principle-based tactics and training.
