Event description

Description

On occasion, Law Enforcement, EMS, and Fire personnel are dispatched to the scene of a medical and/or criminal incident that involves a person who is reportedly out of control. Upon arrival on the scene, the emergency responder may be confronted by a person who is violent, highly agitated, irrational, partially dressed, and resists physical restraint with surprising strength. These subjects could be suffering from a “unique syndrome” commonly referred to as Excited Delirium. A person suffering from Excited Delirium (ExDS) may have taken an illicit drug, suffering from a mental illness, or both. This combination of factors and the persons irrational conduct could lead to a very violent confrontation. Signifigant injuries and/or death to both the officer and ExDS subject are possible outcomes.

First responders need to recognize the fact that these people are suffering from an acute, potentially life threatening medical condition. In addition to this, remorse, normal fear, understanding of surroundings, and rational thoughts for safety are absent in such subjects.

Join us on one of the listed dates to learn about these types of critical incidents. This training session is designed to give our first responders information on how these types of incidents can be managed. Our goal is to help our clients develop procedures that will reduce first responder injuries and liability claims.
