    Gloucester Co Fire Academy
    offers
    BIG RIG RESCUE™- Level1
    October 29 & 30, 2010
    Gloucester Co Fire Academy
    Clarksboro, NJ


    Don’t miss this limited opportunity to attend the best training available for working with some of the area’s foremost towing and recovery professionals and their massive equipment. You’ll learn the safest and most efficient techniques for heavy lifting and stabilization of big rigs involved in collisions with smaller vehicles. Travel if you dare, Hell’s Highway and practice The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns and Underrides. The featured presenter will be Billy Leach, Jr. Billy is internationally recognized as the Developer and Sr. Presenter of BIG RIG RESCUE™, and has presented at FDIC, Firehouse Expo, FDNY’s Technical Rescue School, LACoFD, and many other venues.

    This program will feature both classroom and HANDS-ON learning. Attendance is based upon first-come, first served and is very limited to ensure MAXIMUM HANDS-ON. Attendance during all scheduled training is required to receive a Certificate of Attendance. An extensive handout is provided for reference by attendees.

    What can you expect?

    The intensive classroom session will provide detailed information for The 5 Step Discipline for Overturns/Underrides

    As you travel Hell’s Highway you can anticipate encountering very challenging yet realistic scenarios such as, tanker overturn onto an auto, van trailer underride, concrete mixer overturn onto a smaller vehicle, van trailer overturn onto an auto, and MUCH MORE! Come, learn, and test your new knowledge and skills! You WILL NOT be disappointed!

    NO walk-in registrations! Attendees are expected to furnish the following (without exception):

    Helmet to meet NFPA Technical Rescue Standard
    Full length fire retardant clothing meeting NFPA Std for Technical Rescue
    Safety glasses or goggles to meet ANSI Z89.1+S Standard (helmet shields alone are insufficient)
    Gloves to meet NFPA Cut Resistance and Heat Resistance Standard
    Protective footgear, including impact resistant toe cap meeting NFPA Std for
    Technical Rescue
    Handheld light
    Small battery operated calculator
    Pen/pencil

    Anyone wishing to attend must have previous training and considerable experience in vehicle extrication. BRR1™ is not an entry level training program. The skills are developed to meet NFPA Standard 1670, Technician Level. The fundamental goal of BRR1™ is stabilizing the larger vehicle to create a safer rescue operation. There will be no opportunities to actually cut/spread/ram the big rigs.
