Tactical Medical Team
Durango Fire and Rescue Authority’s Tactical Medic program consists of four full-time career medics, with a minimum of one per shift.
All tactical duties are in addition to the medic’s daily job functions.
The Tactical Medic program offers specially trained Medics to local Law Enforcement agencies with tactical operations.
The Team has been contracted with The Durango Police Department since its formation in 1997.
Once selected, our “TAC” Medics undertake specialized training in order to provide emergency medicine in an ever changing, challenging, and austere environment.
Our training encompasses a 40 hour entry level tactical course, ongoing monthly training, and various conferences on this specialty.
In addition to the trainings, all members work in conjunction with one another to advance the team in new techniques, equipment, and tactics.
