This award is given to a TSAC-Facilitator who has made noteworthy contributions to the tactical field of strength and conditioning. Main job function (75% of time) must be in an active role within the military, law enforcement, or emergency services (firefighter/EMS) with a secondary job of leading strength and conditioning program for your agency/department.
In order to move patients, gear, and equipment properly, the first responder must be able to move well themselves. Both unloaded and loaded movement should be examined and trained. One way to achieve this is to train frequently and properly with a constant focus on both mobility and strength in the various positions that are commonly required of first responders.
