Squad 4 responds to all specialty incidents (USAR) countywide, hazmat, entrapment vehicle accidents, and big rigs county-wide. Station 4 is first due to the deadliest stretch of roadway in the nation, Interstate 95. This provides frequent opportunities to hone the craft of vehicle extrication.

Frazier is a Paramedic, Florida Fire Officer, Florida Hazmat/USAR tech, Diver and Florida State Instructor. He is also an Administrator for First Due Questions and the Tactical Advantage Training LLC Facebook pages, which have a large following online. These pages provide FIRE (First Due Questions) and RESCUE scenarios (TAT) Mon.-Fri. While being admin for both pages, Frazier was frequently asked opinions and preferences on FD products. After finding limited information online, he created the product review portion of Tactical Advantage. At this time he is working with over forty companies in regards to video reviews. The videos are posted under the product review section.
The mission of Tactical Advantage Training LLC is to bring passion & motivation with a unique teaching style. With the increase of "death by power-point slideshows" and strictly book teachers, we thrive on students that are eager to see new methods from the street. You won't hear we "never" or "because the book said" in our program. We train under stress, fatigue, and realistic conditions. The courses are provided based off real-world experience using methods that were polished over years on the nations deadliest roadway and many junkyard locations. We saw a need to bring new vehicle extrication methods that provide quick and efficient extrication of patients. The way extrication is conducted on "real" calls and how it is being trained are two different things. TAT is here to provide options to speed up the way you currently extricate. Everything is based off speed, teamwork and efficiency. We promote training to be the best...it's not fair to your crew and your patients if your not. With over 5,000,000 MVC's last year and 34,000+ fatalities is your department ready?
