Community Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment

National standards call for each jurisdiction to perform a hazard analysis and risk assessment to identify the types of technical rescue responses that present the most risk to their community.  We can help you accomplish this task by performing a hazard analysis, capabilities assessment, vulnerability assessment, and risk assessment focused on the technical rescue-related hazards in your community.  The final product will provide you guidance on how to best prepare your community’s first responders to handle technical rescue incidents.

Equipment Consultation

Are you looking to update or expand your cache of rescue equipment?  We are able to visit your organization, inspect and evaluate your current equipment inventory, and recommend changes or purchases that can improve your operations.  Looking for the best prices on new equipment?  We can help you with that too through our suppliers and partner businesses.

Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs)

Many emergency response agencies lack SOGs for the types of rescue operations they perform. We are able to generate SOGs for technical rescue responses, while keeping the unique characteristics of your agency in mind. Already have SOGs? We are happy to perform a comprehensive review of your existing SOGs to ensure they are consistent with current national standards and best practices. We have developed SOGs for fire departments, EMS agencies, and police departments.

Third Party Evaluation (Team or Individual)

National standards applicable to both organizations and individual rescuers recommend annual performance evaluations.  We can help facilitate technical rescue-based exercises following the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) model that will evaluate your team and provide an improvement plan for any identified deficiencies.  We can also perform individual rescuer evaluations based on the job performance requirements (JPRs) in the most current version of NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications.
