Law enforcement and EMT learning military-based treatments

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - Law enforcement officers and emergency personnel are learning how to do an emergency tracheotomy in a hot zone. 

The training in Pascagoula is called Medical Care Under Fire, and is designed to bring tactical emergency medical treatment during an active shooting situation.

The military-based program tailored for civilian use is one that officials say will save many lives.

Mike Lacy will have more on the training program on WLOX News and WLOX.com tonight.
