Unified Tactical Response at Critical Events


Realistic Training Solutions was created by seasoned and experienced members of law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services and emergency trauma care to specifically address the need for unified training and to identify and correct the common deficiencies in past events that prevented the rapid and effective response to save innocent lives. 


The Unified Tactical Response at Critical Events (UTRaCE) program specifically

addresses the need for unified training of law enforcement, fire and EMS

personnel to work cohesively during high threat incidents.  UTRaCE identifies

incident priorities and addresses how Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS

personnel should work together to safely and effectively achieve the goal of

saving lives.  This training is to assure a safe and effective resolution and to

reduce preventable deaths.


UTRaCE is an all hazards approach to high threat incidents and can be adopted

to any event, such as building collapse, major vehicle collisions, train derailments

or acts of nature where rapid, coordinated response from Law Enforcement (LE),

Fire and EMS agencies is required.  The core program addresses active shooter

or assailant, penetrating trauma and blast injuries utilizing the Tactical

Emergency Causality Care (TECC) guidelines.  Additional disciplines include

critical and extended care, civilian TECC, Explosive Ordinance Detection (EOD),

rapid intervention, and SWAT medical support.


The initial dynamic response to critical events can and will be overwhelming.  The knowledge and training provided by the UTRaCE program will better prepare you to face the challenges of high threat events and safely and effectively reduce preventable deaths.


UTRaCE takes law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel through a review of historical mass violence events and the deficiencies of the emergency responses used.  It then systematically dissects, analyzes, and trains personnel on each aspect of a successful unified emergency provider response through;

  • Threat identification

  • Development of a unified command

  • Implementation of clear unified incident priorities “THREATS”

  • Roles and responsibilities of the contact, rescue, and evacuation teams

  • Assessment and tactical trauma care


                                                                                                               Didactic classroom training is followed by practical evolutions

                                                                                                               where personnel put into action what was just learned under the

                                                                                                               supervision of experienced seasoned law enforcement, fire, EMS

                                                                                                               and trauma care instructors.
