Ada County Paramedics Tactical Medical Team’s Response

The Ada County Paramedics Tactical Medical Team, commonly called “TacMed,” provides medical care and consultation to high-risk law enforcement specialty teams. As the ‘medical side” of the SWAT team, TacMed trains with and work alongside law enforcement officers who serve high-risk warrants, respond to barricaded subjects, perform hostage rescues, dispose of explosives and conduct area searches for violent criminals. TacMed’s primary goal is to ensure officer survival. On November 11, 2016 Annalise Lane, Casey Lane, Cody Porter and Peder Humlen-Ahearn were dispatched to an armed fugitive incident where Boise Police officers were shot while apprehending the fugitive. Boise Police Department charges Ada County Paramedics Tactical Medical Team with saving its officers lives that day.
