  • Heavy Rescue for Overturns and Underrides

    Look out...BRR will be invading Maine next spring. During the invasion responders will come face-to-face with very challenging yet realistic big rig vs smaller vehicles. This training isn't for the beginner, or even novice. Bring all your knowledge and skills, 'cause you'll need them. You will learn that all overturns/underrides are the same, no matter where or when. Join us, and be tested! Learn some heavy rigging skills plus more than you ever wanted to know about timber cribbing. The book you'll be provided is nearly 300 pages with unrivaled content anywhere.

    Just when you think it cant get worse, think again. The enemy is planning a sneak attack for later. Overheard on the secret BAT phone are plans for 'kicking it up a notch'. Totally wicked no less. A BRR course crafted with even bigger and better challenges. Definitely for the pros. You'll learn even more rigging tools and skills plus meet the monsters (some serious mangled metal) Dont be afraid, you'll have knowledge and skills from previous BRR courses to guide you. Not to mention seasoned, professional drill instructors (yep, the ole DI at your ear). The prerequisite for the the 'advanced' course (if you dare) is attending a 'basic' BRR course in the last 3 years. Attendance is seriously limited to ensure PLENTY OF HANDS-ON! Bring ye old calculator too.

    No 'entertainers' here--just the REAL SEAL.

    These courses will be not-for-profit, however a fee will offset the bare expenses.

    No dates have been chosen just yet, however coming soon. Soooo...please email me directly on [email protected] and tell me your interest.

    For now...Charley Mike = Continue the Mission
