Bachman, M., Anzalone, B., Williams, J., et al. (2019). Evaluation of an Integrated Rescue Task Force Model for Active Threat Response. (Abstract only.) Prehospital Emergency Care. 23(3): 309-318.
Following didactic training involving law enforcement and emergency medical services, the authors evaluated scenarios that called for rescue task forces to treat and triage 11 simulated casualties over 13,000 square feet. Over 18 days, and 69 scenarios, the authors concluded that clinical care was appropriate and improvement in task execution was possible.
