"BIG LIFT U" (Heavy Lifting University)
Central Carolina Comm College (Sanford, NC) with the generous support of Paratech, Inc will be offering "BIG LIFT U" June 13/14, 2009 at the ESTC. This is a NON-PROFIT training opportunity.
Planned is LOTS of hands-on with a focus on lifting with air bag rescue systems (high, medium, and low pressure), and stabilization using struts and cribbing.
Such scenarios as full size RR tanker underride, loaded TT overturned onto an auto, mixer vs. auto down embakment, 25K pound mixer drum balanced on an auto, inverted patient removal, TT underrides, and MUCH more! You'll be dealing with heavy vehicles/weights and unusual vehicles in challenging positions.
The featured presenters are:
Kevin Cieciorka, Wreckmaster 6/7A Graduate
Billy Leach, Jr, BIG RIG RESCUE Developer
Capt Robert Morris, FDNY Rescue Co # 1
Nigel Letherby, National Project Mgr for Paratech, Inc
The cost will be kept very minimal, however the training will be first class. This is a great opportunity to develop and refine your skills!
To be added to the registration list, please call Landis Phillips on 919.776.5601 and provide an email. When registration opens you'll be notified via email in order to register.
