As an integral part of the Tennessee Army National Guard’s medical readiness, the 61st Medical Battalion is dedicated to equipping soldiers with the necessary skills to provide essential life-saving interventions in emergency situations. The Tennessee State Guard Medics, leveraging their expertise and experience, conduct comprehensive training programs that encompass various aspects of BLS, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), airway management, and basic trauma care. Through hands-on instruction, rigorous simulations, and practical assessments, they ensure that soldiers are proficient in critical life support techniques, enabling them to respond effectively in high-pressure environments and potentially save lives on the battlefield or in disaster response scenarios.

By imparting essential life-saving skills to the soldiers, the Tennessee State Guard Medics play a pivotal role in enhancing the overall medical readiness of the Tennessee Army National Guard.
