  • All you Heavy Rescue Peeps please read and help if you can

    Hey I was asked to come up with a new training manual for our rescue squad. The manual is to get people cleared to ride our squad as "Rescue Support Techs". This is the bare minimum for riding our squad and are cleared firefighters with all necessary certifications minus those for HTR type stuff (Vehicle rescue, trench, etc.). Any help would be awesome. Thank you!!

    Get a hold of a MFRI Rescue Technician I Manual and adopt that as your bare qualifications to ride. Better yet, send em to MFRI for the class!!!!

      IFSTA Vehicle Extrication.

      Find the Chapters that cover what your agency would consider the bare minimum. Buy a few copies. Have them read it, and test them on both the practical skills and cognitive information.

      No need to reinvent the wheel. Just take the parts of the wheel that already exist that work for your department.

      Another option would be to simply use the chapter in the IFSTA Essentials book, which is FFII level, as your minimum baseline.

        Nice START but a HEAVY RESCUE covers a LOT more than Extrication.........INCLUDING FIGHTING Fire. My vote.....Rescue Technician. T.C.

          Check out Fire Department Special operations by John Norman. In the appendix of the book there is a suggested skills checkoff for members of rescue companies.

              Take a look at what Charlottesville-Albemarle RS put together. It sounds like what you're looking for.

                And........

                Yes, I'm North of the Potomac, but not far off. FWD mentioned MFRI's Rescue Tech Manual, and that is one option. But before trying to figure out what Training to require, you need to figure out what your needs really are. Auto Extrication? Yep. Collapse Rescue? I dunno, Fairfax is right next door, do you use them? Water Rescue? Swiftwater is something that is possible almost anywhere. Ice? Yep. Really HEAVY rescue like AMTRAK trains? Absolutely. you have Amtrak, VRE, and a lot of Freight, including Hazmat passing thru your area. Figure out what your people need to be capable of doing, then Train them to that level. If you come around to my side of the Beltway, drop in, we'd be happy to show you our Heavy Rescue......
