EMS During Civil Disobedience Events

Events involving demonstrations and protests disrupt normal EMS operations and require a coordinated medical response with properly trained and oriented personnel who can move on a moment’s notice and in accordance with a special command and control structure. Planning and capabilities to support Civil Disobedience Units and other law enforcement assets during these special events require a high level of coordination between all public safety entities and the medical system. Traditional EMS training does not account for operating in these dangerous and fast-changing environments and is not generally adequate to support these challenging situations. This course will address these differences and how EMS can support the needs of both law enforcement and the entire community during civil disturbances and unrest.
