  • The one and only original BIG RIG RESCUE

    Due to popular demand, a 'basic' BRR program will be offered this fall. Beginning at 1500 Friday afternoon will be a comprehensive, information-packed classroom learning session. Attendees will receive a 300+ page handbook full of details you simply won't find in a single resource except here. This will create a valuable reference document for the future.

    After surviving the rapid-fire classroom session you'll be totally immersed in HANDS-ON training. Very challenging scenarios will be staged including lots of mangled metal. Your team will rotate to each of these scenarios and determine the best tools and techniques to employ. Wicked scenarios like an overturned TT onto a car, garbage packer underride with 'upper' and 'lower' victims, loaded concrete mixer over onto a car, and tanker underride are planned. An experienced instructor will guide you through The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns/Underrides while using a variety of tools. This isn't a 'sales pitch' for specific items, nor an opportunity to be 'entertained' by a jokester.

    You're expected to take ownership of the information and form a cohesive team that operates SAFELY and EFFICIENTLY.
    The intent is to develop your critical thinking skills, and truly validate the learning process. Sounds almost like boot camp, huh? Nah, it's to craft a rescuer ready for the street. A new addition to this course will be Rigging/Winching. You'll learn about rigging tools, how to use them, plus basic resistance calculations while moving a load.

    The presenters are among the BEST anywhere in the country, period. All have true street experience, and fully intend to offer you the ABSOLUTE PREMIER LEARNING OPPORTUNITY. Take a look at the cadre…

    Battalion Chief Jim Greene-Henrietta (NY) FD
    FF Julio Ramos-Orange County (FL) FD Special Operations
    John Weaver-Wreckmaster Senior Instructor and Top Ten Wreckmaster
    Billy Leach-Senior Presenter, Wreckmaster 6/7A, NCCCO Certified Rigger, Crosby Rigging Trainer, 40+ years of 'street experience', Presenter at Firehouse Expo
    and FDIC + international experience, Chairman of Educational Committee for Transportation Emergency Rescue Committee

    Each of these is very approachable, and will gladly answer questions and assist you.

    All this for the ridiculous low price of $100.00 ($170 out-of-state) per person. You'll never find WORLD CLASS training such as this anywhere else for such a measly cost!

    There is no equal to this training. Join us 'cause we're in it to win it. You can tell others that “Nothing shuts people up like performance.”

    This is a non-profit event sponsored by Robeson Community College and the SouthEast Fire Rescue College Committee.

    And if this wasn't enough, consider joining us for an 'advanced' BRR likely in 2017. This is THE EVENT NOT TO MISS! ONLY the best will survive this training. Several formidable multiple vehicle collisions will be created to test your knowledge and skill limits. However, you must've attended a 'basic' within the last 2 years. So, here's your chance to run with the big dogs. The devious details will be provided later.

    Pre-registration is now open! This will fill very quickly, with first come-first served. Attendance is VERY LIMITED to ensure the optimum experience. After filling, a waiting list will begin so don’t be discouraged.

    To pre-register please ring Tammy on 910.738.7128, Extension 21.
