    Default where/how to even begin

    over the past few years i have had a growing intrest in high angle rescue and everything that goes along with it. the only problem is that i have no idea how or where to even begin. does any one out there have a good refrence on where to begin such a venture. i would like to find a place in the midwest, i live in kansas city. keep in mind that i am starting out from the bear minimun. i have no prior training in anything dealing with ropes other that what has been taught in FF1.

    thank you to anyone that can help me one this one.

    I agree, also look to your state firemarshal for classes.
    In Illinois we have a technical rescue awareness that is a prereq for all other classes then a rope ops and then rope tech.
    All three classes meet the requirements of NFPA 1670. Look for classes in both KS and Missouri if they meet 1670 you can probably transfer them.

    I work in KS currently.

    The best place to go is the University of Kansas Fire & rescue training institute. All the classes are free for KS firefighters, so as long as you are a member in good standing with your department you will be good to go.

    Hope this helps you out.
