Consulting Services

In addition to training, Elder Technical Rescue Services, LLC offers a variety of consulting services related to safety and technical rescue services. We are happy to share our knowledge and experience in a variety of ways that can benefit your organization. Review our consulting services below, and please contact us to discuss your specific needs.


Exercise Planning and/or Evaluation

National standards call for annual demonstrations of competency for both individuals and organizations providing rescue services. This is critical to ensure your members are still capable of safely performing their duties. In addition to a full lineup of training programs, we can also help your organization plan an exercise to meet the annual competency demonstration requirements.

Our team can also serve as independent, objective evaluators for your exercise. We will produce an after action report and improvement plan (AAR/IP) for the benefit of your organization.


Hazard Analysis and Pre-Planning

Performing a hazard analysis of potential technical rescue incidents is essential to ensure that your organization’s training plan is preparing your members to safely respond to emergencies. We have the knowledge and experience to perform a thorough hazard analysis of your community or facility. We can also develop written pre-plans for target hazards that your team can use during training exercises or real-world emergencies.


Technical Rescue Program Safety Audit

Agencies providing technical rescue services may have several national standards and regulations in which they must comply. We have in-depth knowledge of these requirements as they pertain to technical rescue programs. We can conduct a thorough evaluation of your program. A professional report will be produced for your organization with recommended improvement actions.


Training Plan Development

Our team will evaluate your organization's current training program and capability levels based on your personnel, equipment, and standard operating guidelines. We will then generate a recommended training plan for your agency to follow over the next 1 - 4 years. The end result will give your organization a set of achievable training goals that will help you comply with safety standards and improve the rescue services provided to your community or facility.
