The Tactical EMS (TEMS) Team is a specialized branch of our Emergency Medical Services. TEMS is a small group whose primary mission is to render immediate medical care in hostile environments to injured law enforcement officers and civilians .
the TEMS team primarily provides direct medical support for various law enforcement SWAT teams during standoffs, raids, and active shooter incidents. The team requires extensive training including physical fitness standards, police tactics, and tactical medicine. Many of our TEMS members have completed SWAT school and train regularly with county and federal law enforcement agencies.
