American Medical Operations Group has successfully trained Kenya Defence Force (KDF) soldiers on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Skills. The extensive training, which took place on Tuesday, aimed to equip KDF personnel with the necessary skills to handle casualties during the pre-hospital phase of care.

According to KDF, the training focused on providing participants with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage both combat and non-combat emergencies, emphasizing the critical importance of TCCC in saving lives on the battlefield. “TCCC is a crucial initial emergency medical intervention taken by soldiers in cases of combat injuries, aiming to prevent further injury or loss of life,” KDF stated.

The realistic scenarios presented during the training allowed participants to put their TCCC skills to the test, from treating simulated combat injuries to managing trauma under pressure. KDF highlighted that the joint training will not only enhance the integration of skills between the US and KDF but also play a vital role in joint operations moving forward.

With 90% of combat casualties succumbing to injuries before reaching the hospital, the implementation of TCCC skills will undoubtedly prove to be a game-changer in ensuring the survival of injured soldiers before medical evacuation. This groundbreaking training marks a significant step towards enhancing the capabilities of KDF personnel in handling emergency situations, both on the battlefield and in everyday life.
