Technical Rescue Exercise After Action Review / Improvement Plan Template

NFPA 2500 (1670) requires organizations to conduct annual performance evaluations. Documenting an exercise with a formal After Action Review / Improvement Plan (AAR/IP) is a great way to prove you conducted such an evaluation. The Improvement Plan section of the document can also help your team continuously improve the quality of service that it provides.

Technical Rescue Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs)

NFPA 2500 (1670) requires organizations to utilize standard operating guidelines (SOGs) or standard operating procedures (SOPs) for technical rescue incidents. The SOGs included in this document are provided as samples for you to use in your organization. You must ensure they meet any of your specific local, state, and federal legal requirements. They are also purposefully left vague in some sections. You may choose to add more specific procedures for your organization.
