Tech Rescue

Man vs. Machine

$175

with PL Vulcan Fire Training

Calendar Apr 20, 2024 at 8 am

This 1 day course allows students to be instructed on methods they can use to disentangle victims from a variety of situations. Basic techniques for removing rings are addressed. Evolutions progress in complexity to include auger entrapments, impalements (fencing/inside vehicles), persons trapped under vehicles, torch operations, as well as other “tips & tricks” learned from real-world experiences. The Classroom and Practical Skills portion of the program focus on finding the least complicated method of performing such rescues rather than "overthinking" the given situation.

PPE: Bunker Gear and Eye Protection
