A Rescue Task Force (RTF) is a multi-agency ad-hoc group consisting of law enforcement officers, fire and EMS personnel working together to implement survivor care and removal from the incident scene using Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) principles. The composition of an RTF varies, but should operate with three or four law enforcement officers, and two to four EMS or fire personnel for casualty movement and initial treatment. The goal of the RTF is to remove ALL survivors from the active shooter site within ½ hour (or less) of the event. This timeframe will give the most people the opportunity to survive their wounds.
