Recognizing the dangerous conditions and the conduciveness for injury during a tactical police deployment, an agreement for the provision of on-scene medical care was adopted by Washington County EMS and the Brenham Police Department for Tactical Paramedic Deployment as functional team members of the Brenham PD SWAT Team. The Washington County EMS Tactical Medic Team was the second addition to the departments special operations division. Just as military operations units include a medical contingent into its operational plans, this agreement incorporates specially trained Paramedics into the BPD’s tactical operations. The agreement is not limited to just tactical operations it includes such covert operations as meth-labs. Since the beginning of the Tactical Medic Team, the department has sent 9 employees to the intense CONTOMS or equivalent training in various states including Georgia, West Virginia, Texas, and Washington D.C. Currently there are 7 active members of the team.
