My understanding is that these tactical EMT-Basic will operate as part of law enforcement operations, such as high risk SWAT arrest and search warrants, search and rescue, disaster management, mass casualty situations, and critical incidents. Although these medics are not higher-level providers, but they may be the only medics inside the tactical perimeters such as high school shootings. Better a EMT-B medic than none. I guess.
