Doylestown, PA (Ammoland.com) – The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) will be hosting a new webinar for NTOA members on a TEMS Update: Future Trends and Lessons Learned. Dr. Kevin Gerold, the NTOA TEMS Section Chair, will be discussing the recently revised NTOA TEMS Position Statement, which recognizes that police officers are often the initial responders to active violent incidents and calls for all police officers to receive basic TEMS training.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 at 2 p.m. EDT. The webinar is available to NTOA members only. Registration for the webinar for current members can be made on the NTOA website.

The ability to control life-threatening hemorrhage, triage casualties, establish secure casualty collection points and coordinate care with existing EMS responders has become a core law enforcement skill set and will be discussed in the webinar. All police officers should have the basic medical skills and equipment to save the lives of victims, bystanders, police officers and suspects in the event they are wounded.

Dr. Gerold will also discuss lessons learned from existing TEMS programs and shed light on potential future challenges facing police officers and medical providers supporting law enforcement operations. A question and answer period will follow this one hour presentation.

He is a member of the Board of Directors for the Coalition of Tactical Medicine and serves as the TEMS Section Chair for NTOA.
