Talon Tactical Medicine TCCC and NAEMT medical training Tucson for women

Entering a room

As you approach a room that holds a potential threat, keep your thoracic cavity (center mass) behind the door jam as much as possible as you visually "slice the pie".  The extra building materials used to frame the door will stop direct fire from most handguns.

Visually inspect as much of the room as you can before making entry. You should be able to visually clear about 80% of an empty room by slicing the pie, before you go in. Take your time.

Once you commit to making entry, move fast and penetrate deeply, more than a few feet. Bullets tend to travel along walls and remember "corners kill". Clear the corners behind you as you enter the room.
