Big rig rescue-more hands-on!!!
DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!
Central Carolina Community College
BIG RIG RESCUE™- Level 1
February 20 & 21st, 2010
Sanford (Lee County), NC
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. Learn 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.
For 2010 refinements have been made to offer greater quality. The written course handout will include even more comprehensive material, serving as an excellent reference. The classroom session offers a revised AV presentation plus additional learning tools. The highly anticipated hands-on sessions will provide more opportunities with additional new scenarios involving big rigs. Each scenario is realistic and challenging! Attendance is based upon first-come, first served and is very limited to ensure MAXIMUM HANDS-ON.
The course will begin promptly at 0800 on February 20th at Central Carolina Community College Emergency Services Training Center, 3000 Airport Rd, Sanford, NC. (Best to be on site at 0730!)
What can you expect?
You can anticipate encountering very challenging scenarios such as: loaded dump truck overturn onto auto, big rig tractor underride, loaded concrete mixer overturn onto a smaller vehicle, loaded van trailer overturn onto an auto, and MUCH MORE! Come, learn, and test your new knowledge and skills! You WILL NOT be disappointed! We are constantly striving to improve every facet of this extremely popular program. More casualties are being collected and staged at every opportunity.
*NO walk-in registrations!
Attendees are expected to furnish the following (without exception):
>Helmet to meet NFPA Technical Rescue Standard
>Full length fire retardant clothing meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
>Safety glasses or goggles to meet ANSI Z89.1+ Standard (helmet shields alone are insufficient)
>Gloves to meet NFPA Cut Resistance and Heat Resistance Standard for Technical Rescue
>Protective footgear, including impact resistant toe cap meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
>Small battery operated calculator
Anyone wishing to attend must have previous training and considerable experience in vehicle extrication. BRR1™ is not an entry level training program. The skills are developed to meet NFPA Standard 1670, Technician Level. The fundamental goal of BRR1™ is stabilizing the larger vehicle to create a safer rescue operation. There will be no opportunities to actually cut/spread/ram the big rigs.
