Med Tac Global
The Med Tac Global training program is the product of the Threat Safety Science work undertaken with leading experts from organizations such as the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Mayo Clinic, and frontline first responders from around the world. Delivered through CareUniversity, we have pilot programs in California, Texas, Florida, and Hawaii; it is training people who are willing to be Good Samaritans and help save lives in their communities.

Med Tac is short for “Medical Tactical” and is an advanced first aid platform. The goal is to teach anyone the critical bystander care skills that can save lives during the most common life threatening emergencies. Our focus is to train all ages to provide the greatest help in the first 10 minutes before professional first responders arrive and assist them when they do. The training will include how to work with professional first responders and how to help families as they proceed through hospital emergency care.

Bystander Rescue Care Training is a critical need in all communities. The preventable deaths we see in the news are the tip of the iceberg. Our program is a Good Samaritan support system to help everyone move to life saving actions that will save lives.
High Impact Care Hazards are conditions that are frequent, severe, preventable, and measurable. We have identified the leading causes of death that strike children, youth, and those in their workforce years. We provide evidence-based bystander care training that can have the greatest impact.
Bystander Rescue Skills are the skills and competencies that bystanders can learn that will save lives in the few precious minutes before the professional first responders arrive. Such behaviors can be learned by children, adults, and entire families. We have programs for children, adults, law enforcement, educators, and caregivers.
MedTac is the only integrated program addressing the top causes of death of otherwise healthy children, youth, and adults in the workforce. Med Tac leverages partnering with terrific on-site trainers from great organizations who are already in the community.
