Care Under Fire, also referred to as Direct Threat Care or Hot Zone Care, is an approach to managing casualties during an active firearms engagement with an opposition force or during an immediate impending violent threat. This approach is essential for all military and law enforcement officers, and for anyone who may find themselves in a position of armed conflict, whether they themselves are armed or not. Traditional first aid teaches that before any casualty treatment is initiated, that the scene must be rendered safe. In a tactical environment, this is typically not possible, and you or your teammate may not survive long enough for that to happen. Yet there are interventions that can be done, respecting the tactical situation, that can save lives. This course clearly lays out those best practices.
