Incirilik Airmen certify on TCCC

Airmen from the 39th Air Base Wing conduct a care under fire maneuver and retrieve simulated patients in a field training exercise during a Tactical Combat Casualty Care training exercise at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, Dec. 5, 2021. During the exercise, explosive ordnance disposal and medical professionals were evaluated and certified on a series of tasks as part of Incirlik AB’s formal adoption of TCCC. This training provides early, life-sustaining medical care to wounded personnel and limits further causalities in order to achieve mission success. There are three phases of TCCC, which are care under fire, tactical field care and tactical evacuation care. TCCC was established by the U.S. Special Operations Command in 2002 and is now the accepted battlefield prehospital care. The Department of Defense has implemented the TCCC as the new medical practice across the military branches to replace the Self Aid Buddy Care system.
