VIDEO: Tactical Medics Saved Lives During Colorado Springs Shooting

Tactical response paramedics are some of the unsung heroes in the Nov. 27 shooting in Colorado Springs.

Swarms of armed officers, heavy police equipment and hundreds of first responders tried to stabilize the scene around Planned Parenthood, where an active shooter was on the loose.

Inside, innocent victims lay suffering from gunshot wounds, some trapped and in need of immediate medical care.

“The majority of time you don’t register exactly what’s going on.  You rely on your training and you act before you even think at times. You’re rendering aid,” Chuck Long of the Colorado Springs Fire Department’s tactical emergency medical said.

The team can’t talk specifics, but during the shooting, backed by members of Colorado Springs police officers and El Paso County sheriff’s deputies, the tactical paramedics pulled victims from the “hot zone.”
