[R76]Rep. McNamara: Tactical medical bill passes the House

Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — State Representative Wendy McNamara (R-Mount Vernon) authored  House Bill (HB) 1111, which passed out of the House today. This bill deals with tactical emergency medicine and passed with unanimous support.

“Members of the SWAT teams are trained in tactical emergency medicine,” said Rep. McNamara. “However, current Indiana law does not recognize them to perform immediate life-saving measures in the most dangerous of situations. This bill remediates that situation.” 

HB 1111 allows an individual to practice tactical emergency medicine if the individual:

1.  is an emergency medical technician, an advanced emergency medical technician, or paramedic;

2.  is employed by a law enforcement agency or an emergency medical services agency to provide retrieval and field medical treatment to victims of violent confrontations; and

3.  has successfully completed an accredited educational training program in tactical emergency medicine.

“It is important that we give our first responders – who are trained to handle emergency situations – the green light to respond immediately with life-saving measures and save lives,” said Rep. McNamara.

It will now be sent to the Senate for further discussion.
