BIG RIG RESCUE™
September 11/12, 2010
A permanent site for the BRR™ course is established on the campus of Central Carolina Community College in Sanford (Lee County) North Carolina.

The site features a new classroom and hands-on facilities. Casualties to be used during the hands-on training include 2 loaded concrete mixers, a tanker trailer, a van trailer, 2 school buses, bobtail tractors, mid-range trucks, and autos and more.

Training will be very challenging, both mentally and physically. Attendees are kept to a minimum to ensure MAXIMUM HANDS-ON!




You will face very challenging yet realistic scenarios including: loaded concrete mixer overturn onto a smaller vehicle, fully loaded van trailer overturn onto an auto, bobtail tractor underride, mixer vs. car in ditch, and MUCH MORE. Come, learn, and test your new knowledge and skills! You WILL NOT be disappointed!


The featured presenter will be Billy Leach, Jr. Billy is recognized as the Developer and Sr. Presenter of BIG RIG RESCUE™, and presented at the FDIC, Firehouse Magazine’s Expo, FDNY’s Technical Rescue School, and many other venues.

This program will feature two days of both classroom and HANDS-ON learning. Attendance is based upon first-come, first served and is very limited to ensure MAXIMUM HANDS-ON. An extensive handout is provided for reference to attendees.

A very minimal cost per person is being assessed, which covers the course cost, handout, injury insurance, and other materials. The course will begin promptly at 0730 each day at CCCC Emergency Services Training Center, located at 3000 Airport Rd., Sanford, NC 27330.

What can you expect?

The comprehensive classroom session will provide detailed information for the topics of:

Timber Cribbing/Strut Support Operations
The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns/Underrides
Winching/Rigging Gear




The hands-on training offers challenges to small teams in a time compressed format, similar to everyday responses. It will be both mentally and physically challenging! Each team is expected to develop a plan of action and execute that plan within a specified time period. Should the initial plan prove unsuccessful, the team is expected to develop an alternate and continue the mission. Careful planning, critical thinking, utilization of classroom learning, and prompt plan execution will be paramount for success.
