TacMed was started in 2000 with a view to meeting the need for Specialized Life Support Medical personnel who can function exceptionally well in situations that are of high risk and/or hostile in nature.
With a South African background, TacMed’s instructors have served their time in South Africa’s armed forces as Special Forces Operators, Special Task Force, Advanced Life Support Paramedics and Operational Emergency Orderly (OECO)/ OPS Medics. In the civilian realm, they have worked with South Africa’s private and public emergency services through the turbulent transition from apartheid to democracy, where an average working night saw as many as 16 gunshot, riot and vehicle trauma-related calls. They also have extensive helicopter medevac experience, working in South America Colombia, the Middle East and throughout Africa.
