Global Guards provides a large number of Combat Paramedics embedded on each platoon to ensure immediate and professional attention to injured guards. Although they have some similarities, army medic training and civilian medic training are two very different things. The main difference between paramedics and army paramedics training is that army medics are trained to provide medical assistance in combat situations and can do trauma care that’s beyond the scope of a civilian medic. And that’s exactly what we are looking for at Global Guards especially when operating in isolated areas.

Chilean Army and Marine Corps paramedics must complete basic combat training, just like any combat soldier. After that, they learn basic EMT (Emergency Medical Technician or civilian medic) skills such as CPR, bandaging and stabilizing broken bones. They also are trained in IV procedures, which is beyond the scope of a civilian medic at the EMT level.
