MercyHealth’s new 25,000-square-foot Tactical Training Center expands the breadth and scope of the education offered at the adjacent Mercyhealth Emergency Medical Services Training Center (MREMS). With state-of-the-art simulation labs and well-trained, DOJ-certified instructors and simulation staff, we offer valuable tactical training not seen before in this region.
In the International Association of Fire Chiefs’ position paper on active shooter, the author remarks that, “It is imperative that local fire and law enforcement agencies have common tactics, common communications capabilities and a common lexicon for seamless, effective operations.”
In other words, the gap between law enforcement and EMS/FD operations must close. The Tactical Training Center offers participants the opportunity to do just that—close the gap to provide better and more effective integrated care.
