Was wondering if we had any tactical medics out here (SWAT, ERT, SRT, HRT, etc.). In about a year I decided that that is something I would seriously like to consider doing; I've heard training programs by Blackwater USA and some others thrown around, but was wondering what ya'll (or your buddies) have used, and any recommendations/advice. Also, would it be better to wait until I become a sworn officer to take the course? I figured it'd be better to get it out of the way beforehand as otherwise I'd need to take at least a week off to get it done, but not totally sure on that one. Additionally, should I put forth the time and delay another year to finish getting my ALS cert, or is NREMT-B fine (in general; I know it varies from department to department). Thanks guys! 5 years experience in EMS.
