Osceola County Sheriff's Swat and Fire Rescue Team Wins First Place in Medic Challenge

Osceola County - On February 11, Osceola County Sheriff's deputies and Osceola County Fire Rescue paramedics won the 2016 Tactical/Medic Challenge which was held in Lake County this week. This event was the first in the state of Florida which included a team competition and educational symposium to improve the skill sets of both the medical operator and the non-medical operator.

Each event had competitors all capable of engaging in handgun and shoulder fired weapons courses of fire. The Sheriff's Office team of 6 competed in four categories:

  • Care Under Fire
  • Tactical Field Care
  • Tactical Field Care & Tactical Evacuation Care
  • Obstacle Course

The Osceola County team won first place and Deputy Sheriff Corey Griffin took first place in the individual tactical handgun competition.

The competition was hosted by the Lake County Sheriff's Office, the Institute of Public Safety Lake Technical College and Tactical Element.

“Competitions like this provide training and education which help better prepare our team for real-life scenarios. Partnering with trained medics in our SWAT program enhances our current operations. I am very proud of all their efforts,” stated Sheriff Bob Hansell.
