First Receivers – No Notice Events – ONLINE – COMING SOON
What happens when there is an active violent incident and your hospital gets 20 or 50 or 100 casualties immediately following? Your non-trauma hospitals will receive patients because the trauma centers will be overwhelmed.

- Christ Church Hospital, New Zealand: 41 casualties in 45 minutes
A First Receiver is the first hospital or health care facility that will get traumatic casualties from an active violent incident or mass casualty event. This course is designed for ED physicians, nurses, ED techs, and providers at non-trauma center hospitals who will receive patients when there are so many wounded that every local hospital is getting patients.
This course moves Tactical Emergency Casualty Care and Tactical Casualty Combat Care Guidelines into the Emergency Department.
- How do you allocate resources?
- How do you manage the chaos?
- Based on historical samples, you will run out of supplies, resources, and personnel. What do you do when you run out?
This course aims to give you a plan and arm you with the questions you need to find out what your hospital’s plan is.
This isn’t surge capacity, it’s throughput, and saving lives.
