The Tactical Rescue Challenge was created in 2018 as a means to integrate critical medical skills and tactics needed to perform rescue operations effectively in small team elements. The ability to perform a hasty rescue when time is of the essence and additional resources are not available is a skill first responders must have in their arsenal.  The small team elements must also be able to maintain situational awareness and are required to provide their own fire support to complete the rescues/mission.

The 2024 Tactical Rescue Challenge will consist of up to thirty, two man teams, competing to become the Tactical Rescue Challenge Champion.  Competitors are expected to be a mix of military units, local/state/federal law enforcement and military Special Operations.  Some units will integrate dedicated TEMS providers and fire department RTF personnel.  All competitors are required to safely handle and operate firearms, and perform medical skills based on TCCC & TECC standards in the course of the rescue operations.  The Tactical Rescue Challenge combines skill evaluation into scenario based competition created to provide high intensity, realistic training opportunities.  The competition is sponsored and supported by leaders in the industry and made possible by a great team of volunteers.  This is a competition/training event designed to bring our law enforcement, TEMS and military community together while honing the needed skills.

*** We will allow one tactical medic (non-shooter) on teams that wish to integrate their TEMS personnel. The TRC is designed for every participant to be a shooter, however we will make exceptions on an individual basis. The TEMS member will be exposed to the same stresses as the shooter and will be required to make entry into simulated hot areas. TEMS personnel that are not sworn, however train firearms with their team and are competent may be allowed to shoot when paired with a LE/MIL shooter (exceptions will be made on an individual basis). Please contact us with further questions. 

Proceeds benefit first responders and military personnel in need through Our Heroes Fund.
