The entire C-TECC meets bi-annually with subcommittee meetings ongoing throughout the year to address specific questions, research topics and operational issues.

The strength of the C-TECC lies in the process.  Based upon the CoTCCC model, the C-TECC began with existing experiential knowledge and medical research.  Where the CoTCCC began with COL Ronald F. Bellamy’s data and Mogadishu[1], C-TECC is able to draw upon the vast experience of our returning warriors and the extensive body of work derived from the Joint Theater Trauma System (JTTS).  Further, recognizing that the tactical situation must drive any guidelines for high-risk medical operations, the C-TECC relies heavily on end-user input and includes front line representatives from law enforcement, fire and rescue on the voting committee.
