Our primary mission is to bring good medicine to bad places. Members receive special training so they can provide an expanded scope of prehospital emergency medicine where it is needed most; the Point of Wounding. Training is an essential element to accomplishing this mission and therefore has become our secondary mission; training medics to become Unconventional Medics.
The Division provides Operational Medical Support to public safety agencies and the community through the following programs. Each specialized team will work with the law enforcement, fire department, or hazmat team responsible for providing that service, and not attempt to provide these services alone.

Cypress Creek Tactical Medic Team
The Cypress Creek Tactical Medic Team is made up of tactically trained law enforcement officer/paramedics who have undergone extensive training in tactical operational medical support. Team members have also undergone training in basic/advanced tactics, tactical waterborne operations, high-rise rescue and narcotics enforcement operations, just to name a few. This additional training prepares the team members to function within the inner perimeter to support tactical law enforcement operations.
Cypress Creek Tactical Medic Team members train with tactical teams on a regular basis to gain a working knowledge of the team, its tools and tactics – including mission objectives, weapons, pyrotechnics and other devices likely to be deployed, as well as communication policies and standard operating procedures. The CCEMS unit was the first such team in the country to carry whole blood on all missions and during training exercises.

First Responder Program
Cypress Creek EMS is committed to providing exceptional prehospital emergency medical care to more than 550,000 people who live and work within Harris County Emergency Services District #11, a 177 square mile area of unincorporated Harris County. CCEMS is dedicated to minimizing the amount of time someone waits for an emergency medical assistance. This is accomplished in such a large response area by partnering with other emergency responder agencies to put trained and equipped responders on scene quickly when seconds count.
CCEMS works with the individual responder agency providing oversight, dispatching, training, and logistical support. Each agency works under a specific set of protocols authorized by Dr. Levon Vartanian, Medical Director for CCEMS.
Public Access Defibrillation Program
CCEMS and ESD#11 recognize the importance of putting important lifesaving equipment where it is needed most, in the hands of people at the scene of emergency incidents. One way of trying to accomplish this is through a Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) program. The goal of this program is to provide the training and resources to aid in the successful resuscitation of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. This goal can be achieved by making the equipment and training readily available to the public. The success of a PAD Program depends on three important factors. The location of equipment, training of personnel, and public education are all vital components of this program.
