  • Provides specialized training in the realm of building collapse rescue, a threat in every community.  Content will include warning signs, collapse causes, void identification, safety precautions, search techniques, team operations, building construction a
    wareness, and initial fire department operations.  Several case studies will be discussed and a table top exercise is included.  Prerequisites: None
  • Provides identification and awareness information to allow students to make reasonable judgments in confined space rescue situations.  It includes topics such as regulations, response, planning, hazard types, personal protective equipment, retrieval equip
    ment, and air quality.  Case histories and student exercises provide opportunities to practice planning skills for confined space rescue response, as well as evaluate past incidents. A test will be given at the end of the class. Prerequisites: None
  • This program is designed to provide the background knowledge necessary to perform rescue operations at a structural collapse incident.  The course includes instruction on: structural construction considerations such as types of construction, construction
    techniques, terminology and mechanism of collapse based on structure type; detailed concepts of structural shoring systems; void search and rescue operations in structural collapse incidents; structural collapse team organization and operations concepts.  Students will also participate in a hands-on component where emergency collapse shoring as well as basic collapse shoring construction will be introduced.  This is a 12 hour course which will be delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: Basic Structural Collapse Operations
  • This two-day program will familiarize the student with the tools used in structural and excavation collapse related incidents.  This is an intensive hands-on course and students will be evaluated on proper use of the tools provided. This is a 16 hour cour
    se which will be delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: Basic Structural Collapse Operations and Trench Rescue Awareness
  • This two-day program will thoroughly familiarize the student with the exterior shoring techniques needed to safely construct all the types of exterior shores generally needed to conduct safe rescue operations and stabilize the exterior of the structure. S
    tudents in this intensive hands-on course will be tested on the proper construction of the various shores needed to accomplish this task. This is a 16-hour course delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites:  Rescue Technician Basic, Basic Structural Collapse Operations, Medium Level Structural Collapse Concepts, and Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Tools  
  • This two-day program will familiarize the student with the proper interior shoring techniques needed to safely construct all the types of interior shores generally utilized to conduct safe rescue operations. This is an intensive hands-on course, and all s
    tudents will be tested on the proper construction of the various shores. this is a 16-hour course delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: Rescue Technician Basic, Basic Structural Collapse Operations, Medium Level Structural Collapse Concepts, Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Tools and Medium Structural Collapse Operations:  Exterior Shoring  
  • This is a two-day program with intensive practical void search training. The students participate in numerous void search evolutions with emphasis on team concepts, proper search techniques, safety operations, and size up. Simulated rescue scenarios will
    be conducted with students required to safely extricate victims from void spaces. This is a 16 hour course delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: Rescue Technician Basic, Basic Structural Collapse Operations, Medium Level Structural Collapse Concepts, Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Tools, Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Exterior Shoring and Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Interior Shoring.
  • This course combines Rescue Technician Basic and Confined Space Rescue allowing students to complete this training in a reduced time frame.   Rescue Technician-Basic - Provides a base from which to prepare students for a wide variety of possible rescue o
    perations.  This course includes an overview in areas of specialized rescue, search, technical rescue management, risks and priorities; use of ropes, knots, and rope systems in a low angle environment, and establishment of landing zones for helicopter operations.  Demonstrations, practice sessions and testing are included.    Confined Space-Technician - This course provides practical training in confined-space hazards; air monitoring and ventilation; space isolation techniques; personal protective equipment, including both supplied air, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and respirators; and retrieval systems and methods.  Practical evolutions enable the student to evaluate a specific confined-space incident and perform the necessary procedures to safely and effectively rescue the victim. This is a 40 hour course delivered over 4 sessions. Prerequisites: Firefighter 1 and Confined Space Awareness
  • This course will discuss problems that can and do occur in trench rescue incidents.  Safety techniques, shoring techniques, proper procedures, team operations, and hazard assessment will all be discussed and explained in depth.  A test will be given at th
    e end of the course. This is an 8 hour course which will be delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: None
  • This two day program consists of intense hands-on training in the field of trench rescue.  The students will be taught several ways to shore trenches, the different types of extrication techniques, proper rescue site management, as well as the proper safe
    ty concepts needed to complete a safe and successful rescue.  There will be live exercises in which the students will extricate a trapped victim from an open trench scenario. This is a 16 hour course delivered over 2 sessions. Prerequisites: Rescue Technician Basic, Medium Structural Collapse Operations: Tools and Trench Rescue Awareness
