    Thumbs up Heavy Rescue



    During 2010 Central Carolina Community College will offer two BRR and two BLU courses at its Emergency Services Training Center located in Sanford (Lee County), NC. There will be four opportunities to attend the best heavy rescue training available. These courses will fill quickly so early pre-registration is very important.

    ‘BIG LIFT U’
    March 27/28 and September 18/19, 2010
    You will face very challenging yet realistic scenarios including, concrete mixer vs. smaller vehicle in ditch, fully loaded TT trailer overturn onto an auto, full size RR tanker underride, 25,000 pound mixer drum balanced on an auto, inverted patient removal using air cushions, simulated structural collapse, and multiple overturn/underride situations! The focus will be the effective use of air bag rescue systems (high, medium, & low pressure) and strut/cribbing support. During this training you learn how to safely lift several thousand pound vehicles/objects and how to stabilize them. Are you ready for serious extrication training?

    February 20/21 and September 11/12, 2010
    Don’t miss this limited opportunity to attend the best training available for working with some of the area’s foremost towing and recovery professionals and their massive equipment. You’ll learn the safest and most efficient techniques for heavy lifting and stabilization of big rigs involved in collisions with smaller vehicles. Travel if you dare, Hell’s Highway and practice The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns and Underrides. The featured presenter will be Billy Leach, Jr. Billy is internationally recognized as the Developer and Sr. Presenter of BIG RIG RESCUE™, and has presented at FDIC, Firehouse Expo, FDNY’s Technical Rescue School, LACoFD, and many other venues.

    As you travel Hell’s Highway you can anticipate encountering very challenging scenarios such as tanker underride, big rig underride, concrete mixer overturn onto a smaller vehicle, van trailer overturn onto an auto, and MUCH MORE!

    Both programs will provide two intensive days combining both classroom and HANDS-ON learning. An extensive reference handout will be provided for each attendee.

    Anyone wishing to attend must have previous training and considerable experience in vehicle extrication, as these courses are not entry level training. The skills developed meet NFPA Standard 1670, Technician Level.

    Attendance is limited to ensure maximum hands-on for each attendee.

    nothing like self promotion.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
