    Default New Team Training Help!

    Good afternoon,

    I am in the process of starting a new Tech Rescue team for my department. We have a bunch of members trained to the Technician levels in many disciplines. I am looking for some basic Powerpoint presentations to start everyone off on the same page.

    Topics include:
    Rope Rescue
    Confined Space
    Trench Rescue

    for now... If anyone has any basic powerpoints they could share it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Ugh... Death by PowerPoint. But if you must, try this link.

    I don't have anything in the way of powerpoints, but would suggest looking at attending the NYS Fire Academy's first Technical Rescue Conference, which is March 8 - 10. Also if your in the Westchester area aren't there already 2 teams in place?

    There is one program at the conference on starting a tech rescue team though, plus classroom and hands on programs in every discipline covered in NFPA 1670 / 1006.

    Default Tech Rescue Training Opportunities?

    Does anyone have any suggestions for technical rescue training programs offered anywhere in the country (preferably midwest or west)? I'm a training Lt and looking to attend some tech rescue training so I can bring ideas and techniques back to my department (specifically trench rescue if possible, that is our main focus in our MABAS region). Any information is greatly appreciated.

    I don't know if Cali is too far west for you or if non ca residents can attend but the Riverside Cal Fire training has an excellent program for rescue training. I attended their LARRO course and it was very well ran, and the cost is reasonable too.

    The best trench rescue program I have seen is in Michigan (and I have been to classes in at least 3 other states). Ron Zawlocki is the program manager; he's one of the most knowledgable trench guys out there. Plenty of real-world experience and a darn fine instructor too. Check their website www.musartf.org

    While all you rope rescue cats are here, we're considering forming a team and would like to know your basic equipment list and maybe who some good vendors are.
