Tactical Trained Medical Personnel: Wanted… or not? The Belgian Option
09 Sep 2020
When the going gets tuff in an hostile environment and tactical skills are essential to survive, EMS withdraw. This is contradictory. After all, when there is a need for proper medical assistance, they disappear. This means we need tactically trained medical personnel to stay in that hot zone. But, do they exist? Does it make sense to recruit and train them? Can we keep the costs and benefits in balance? Or, are there other options? From the point of view of a government, this is a difficult and tricky thinking exercise. In this presentation I would like to take you along in the Belgian thought process.
