New First Responder Guide for Surviving IEDs and Active Shooter Incidents Available

June 18, 2015  | 

A new report is available on improving survivability in IED or active shooter incidents. The First Responder Guide for Improving Survivability in Improvised Explosive Device and/or Active Shooter Incidents was developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office of Health Affairs at the request of the National Security Council's working group on improvised explosive device situations and in response to first responders who have encountered mass casualties from IEDs or active shooter incidents.

This guide includes threat-based scenarios and translates evidence-based response strategies developed by the U.S. military for use by civilian first responders, according to the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC). Topics covered include hemorrhage control, protective equipment, and response and incident management.

The problem with these federal guides are that they are extemely lengthy and treat the reader as if he has no law eforcement experience. Too often they waste pages by stating the obvious, which discourages people who do the job for a living from reading them. The federal government needs to focus more on delivering information for people who are already have basic law enforcment training. Furthermore, when they send out bulletins they need to cut out the lengthy customer surveys at the end (which they obviously ignore anyway).
