The Active Attack Integrated Response Train-the-Trainer Course (AAIR) is a 40 hour performance level direct delivery course designed to improve integration between law enforcement, fire, tele-communicator and emergency medical services (EMS) in active attack / shooter events. The course provides law enforcement officers with key medical skills based on tactical emergency casualty care (TECC) guidelines, which can be used at the point of injury (POI) to increase survivability of victims. The course also provides a model framework for law enforcement, fire, and EMS to integrate responses during an active attack / shooter event through the rescue task force concept. This course has been designed to improve the safety and survivability of victims of active attack / shooter events and increase the effectiveness, coordination, and resource integration between law enforcement, fire, tele-communications and EMS when responding to these events. AAIR will be replacing ALERRT II (Tactical/Medical) as no further ALERRT II Train-the-Trainer courses will be conducted.
Participants may wear their agency issued or approved uniform to class each session. This course is a hands-on training course and participants are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing for conducting practical exercises and scenarios. Fire and EMS personnel do not need to bring bunker gear. Department or agency issued or personal weapons, both primary and secondary, are not required for this course. Officers are responsible for properly securing their weapons during the training course and should follow agency policy. A lockable storage container will be available on-site to secure handguns during the practical exercise portion of the course. Handguns must remain in a secure holster to be stored in the provided lockable container. Ammunition, weapon magazines, batons, electronic control devices, knives, and pepper spray are not allowed in the training area at any time during the course. Duty radios for use in train-ups and scenarios is strongly encouraged. This allows each individual to work with their equipment they’ll be using in an actual incident as well as it tests interoperability of the system once multiple agencies are on scene.
Course is limited to 15 participants: 8 LE, 7 Fire or EMS (EMT-B certified: Preferably EMT-I or EMT-P). 2 Dispatchers will also be required (per class).
Priority will be given to Police Chiefs’ Association member agencies (1 per agency), Orange County Fire (1 per agency) and Orange County EMS (1 per agency) unless seats cannot be filled. Fire and EMS split should be 3 Fire to 4 EMS or 4 Fire to 3 EMS or similar. Any additional registrations will be waitlisted.
