BIG RIG RESCUE (Overturns/Underrides) Offered
BIG RIG RESCUE™
April 27/28, 2012
El Reno, OK
Sponsored by Cavin’s Towing and Recovery Service
Cavin’s T & R is pleased to offer the BIG RIG RESCUE program again during 2012. The course has been revised to include some different scenarios that offer greater challenges, more written information, and an updated AV presentation. The goal is to offer the BEST training available for the topic.
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, underrides, and lots more. Come, learn, and test your new knowledge and skills!
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, International Vehicle Extrication Competition, 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, booklet, and other materials.
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
You will learn how to calculate resistances and determine how best to rig, lift, and stabilize the big rigs involved in overturns and underrides. This will improve the safety of all operating at scenes such as this! Otherwise, how do you actually know if you’re operating safely and within the WLL of your equipment? You will learn how to use equipment you already possess for new and safe applications. The BRR training is detail oriented and focused on safety of all involved in a controlled environment. The information provided in this course is unmatched anywhere. All presenters have extensive training, experience, and continue to operate in their field every day. The presenters include heavy recovery operators and technical/heavy rescue providers, who achieved and maintain certification in their respective areas. This training isn’t simply a demo of some type of equipment or ‘entertainment’. You will be directly involved with rigging, lifting, and stabilizing big rigs. There will be no opportunity to actually cut/spread/ram the big rigs or autos however.
The hands-on training offers challenges to small groups in a time compressed format, similar to everyday responses. It will be both mentally and physically challenging! Each group is expected to develop a plan of action and execute that plan within a specified time period. Should the initial plan prove unsuccessful, the group 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. Presenters will guide you through The 5 Step Discipline while challenging you to critically think, evaluate and solve problems.
Do not delay! This course fills very quickly.
Attendees are expected to furnish the following (without exception):
>Helmet with chinstrap meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
>Full length fire retardant protective clothing meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
>Safety glasses or goggles meeting ANSI Std Z87.1+ (helmet shields are insufficient)
>Gloves meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue or Firefighting
>Protective footgear with impact resistant toe cap meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
>Small battery operated calculator
>Foul weather gear
