ATMA is a not for profit that represents the interests of Australians involved in the provision and development of tactical medicine across the spectrum of applications, from the general emergency services response to high threat incidents, right through to highly specialised providers in military, police and other special operations groups.
Our mandate is driven by our memberships enthusiasm to continually improve and provide the highest level of first aid and medical care in austere, dangerous, remote and dynamic environments.
The development of improved capability to save lives is the underlying principle of ATMA, and this is achieved through advice, advocacy, training, networking, collaboration and the annual Australian Tactical Medical Conference.
