The D-Dey Response Group

What kind of skills did you bring with you to the civilian world when you left the military? The D-Dey Response Group brought the knowledge and experience of several decades in Special Forces groups, Firefighting units and Paramedic teams. With such an impressive resume, their own description lends credence to what you can learn by attending their courses:

"Our uniquely qualified instructors teach the most sound, proven and innovative practices in the tactical medical and security field. The team is entirely composed of Special Forces combat veterans with expertise and knowledge that has been verified both on and off the battlefield. Between our medical, communications, intelligence and security experts, we have over 100 years of combined experience."

The President and Instructor

In this episode, we had the opportunity to speak with Don and The President (Don's wife, Cecilia.....seriously, she's the President of the company). The level of training that you could experience varies based upon your already existing skills and an assessment by the group instructors. As Don says, you can go "from zero to hero" while attending their courses. He was probably just trying to make me feel better about my own dirty, leg infantry background.

The Courses

While their training courses vary in intensity and levels of knowledge, they have broken down the training programs so that they can be experienced in advancing levels as you progress through the program. You have the option to progress through the programs, or simply experience one of the courses based on your existing skills. Here are your options:

  • Marine Medical Training
  • Tactical Medicine
  • Civilian
  • Security/Emergency Action Planning

You can find out more about the courses by visiting the D-Dey website and contacting them or by visiting their Facebook and Instagram feeds.




We hope you enjoy the show and look forward to bringing you another soon.
