About the Instructor: 

Dennis R. Krebs, retired from the Baltimore County Fire Department after serving for 25 years. He is still an active volunteer firefighter and paramedic in Maryland. After nearly being shot while assigned to a medic unit in 1982, he developed the first survival skills training program for fire & rescue and toured the country providing the ground-breaking training to first responders. His book, When Violence Erupts, A Survival Guide For Emergency Responders, was an outgrowth of that training.

In addition, he authored the novel, Medic Up, Where Criminals, SWAT Teams & Medicine Intersect as well as contributed to other tactical medicine and terrorism texts. Subsequently, Dennis became a tactical medic and provided medical support to various federal special operations teams through the Department of Homeland Security and later Johns Hopkins Division of Special Operations. He currently provides training to various military assets.
