Technical Rescue Programs

We offer a full lineup of technical rescue classes at various levels. Our training programs include the following disciplines identified by NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications (2021):

  • Common Passenger Vehicle Rescue
  • Confined Space Rescue
  • Floodwater Rescue

In addition to initial training programs in each of the above disciplines, we also offer refresher programs of various lengths that can be customized to meet your agency’s needs. Refresher training is not only required by various NFPA standards and OSHA regulations, but it is also vital to ensure your agency is providing the best rescue services possible to the community.

Hazardous Materials Operations Programs

Not only is hazardous materials operations level training required for all first responders, but it is especially important for rescue professionals who may encounter hazardous materials in confined spaces, floodwater, and other locations. Our hazardous materials programs include:

  • HazMat Operations: Core Competencies
  • HazMat Operations: Annual Refresher

Our programs are based on NFPA 472 Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents (2018) and exceed OSHA HAZWOPER (29 CFR 1910.120) training requirements for first responders.

Basic Life Support Programs

We are strong believers in patient-focused technical rescue operations. Additionally, various NFPA standards and OSHA regulations require a minimum of BLS level care be available at both training events and incidents. Our BLS programs include:

  • Advanced First Aid
  • Basic First Aid
  • BLS for Healthcare Providers (CPR/AED)
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Emergency Medical Response Refresher
  • EMT Refresher
  • Medical Aspects of Technical Rescue

In addition to being passionate about technical rescue, all our instructors are current EMS providers. Our BLS programs are accredited by ASHI and/or PA DOH Bureau of EMS.
