Tactical Ranch® operates in conjunction with Covenant Special Projects, LLC, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned and Operated Small Business specializing in elite security consulting and training services provider for U.S. and Allied Nation Governments, Local, State and Federal Agencies and private customers. Our foundation in the U.S. Military Special Operations Forces (SOF) community provide us a unique experience-base and specific skill-sets which serve as a base for our programs of instruction.
Our Mission is to provide consistent, best-practice-based tactical and defensive training services in an ethical, responsive manner, on-time and within budget constraints.
Tactical Ranch® (TR) was founded by Tom Buchino, Sergeant Major, U.S. Army Special Forces (Ret.). Tom is a decorated combat veteran with worldwide experience having served in multiple Special Forces Operational Groups, the Special Warfare Center and School, and a Counter-Drug Organization.
Tom has recruited TR's cadre of instructors from all aspects of the SOF arena and specialized Law Enforcement personnel. TR's cadre are subject matter experts in their specific disciplines; all possessing the common goal to provide fundamentally-sound, relevant, best training to our customers.
Our cadres combat and trainer experience means you receive training by someone that has actually employed what they are instructing.
Our trainers include:
U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets)
U.S. Army RANGERs
U.S. Navy SEALs
U.S. Air Force Para-Rescue
U.S. Marine Corps Special Operations
We train to WIN!
Tactical Ranch® distinguishes itself by providing students a cadre of subject matter experts vs. one instructor tasked with instructing a large number of students. TR operates its programs of instruction on a Student / Instructor ratio-basis; promoting course safety and ensuring each student receives necessary attention for skills development.
Through service to this nation, our cadre has developed and more importantly employed specialized skills in the world's most unforgiving environments. We know what works and what doesn't. We are dedicated to promoting your tactical readiness, defensive posture, survivability and mission readiness.
North American Rescue (NAR) is dedicated to decreasing preventable death by providing the most effective and highest quality mission critical medical products to our military, federal agencies, civilian law enforcement, EMS and pre-hospital life savers. We design, develop and test these products based on the military's Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines, Rescue Human Factors® engineering, evidenced based medicine and an in-depth understanding of the requirements from you – our customers.
Ensuring that we remain at the forefront of casualty care as a premier provider of life-saving products and supplies, NAR has assembled a seasoned staff of former Special Operations medics, experienced Law Enforcement / SWAT / EMS healthcare providers, credentialed product development and quality professionals, former senior military medical officers and expert consultants.
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines focus on the 3 leading causes of preventable combat death – extremity hemorrhage, tension pneumothorax and airway obstruction. NAR's mission critical medical products such as the C-A-T® (Combat Application Tourniquet), ChitoGauze™ Hemostatic Bandage, HyFin® Chest Seal, ARS® Needle Decompression Kit and Nasopharyngeal Airway Kit, to name a few, directly address these causes. Together, these products have potentially saved more lives on the modern battlefield than could have been saved at any other time in history. In addition to the 3 leading causes of preventable death, hypothermia has a significantly negative impact on a trauma patient's survival rate. Consequently, NAR developed the Hypothermia Prevention and Management Kit™ (HPMK®), with other new hypothermia products in the pipeline.
Commitment to Our Customers is NAR's top priority. Whether you are on the battlefield, in an urban landscape or in austere environments, hostile conditions pose unique challenges for managing traumatic injury. At NAR, we recognize that in a post 9/11 world requirements are ever-changing for those dedicated combat lifesavers, tactical healthcare providers and law enforcement / EMS professionals who stand in harm's way to save the life of another. You are our customers and empowering you to save lives is the very heart of our business and our culture.
Our Commitment to Quality is demonstrated by NAR being an ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 Certified medical device company. These certifications mean that we adhere to the highest standards of quality and to rigorous regulatory compliance, ensuring that our products are of the highest quality and safe to use. In addition, the NAR team possesses a unique insight into the unconventional challenges of tactical medicine and is committed to providing breakthrough products that span the full spectrum of tactical casualty care, from the point of wounding to the doors of the trauma center. Is your medical device provider committed to maintaining Medical Device standards through ISO 13485? We are.
Commitment to Our Community is an essential part of the NAR culture and focuses on our charitable giving program, Operation Giveback. NAR has donated over $17 Million to primarily support Wounded Warriors and their families. With a focus on combat medics and their families, we appreciate your sacrifice and through programs like the Ranger Medic Handbook, strive to make our contributions count to the community we serve.
As "Partners In Empowerment" in our community, our relationship with the South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation Department (SCVRD) provides jobs and training for their clients, who are faced with a wide variety of disabilities. Giving back to the community provides us with focus to fulfill our Corporate social responsibilities.
