Class Sessions

DAY #1 Vehicle Rescue Classroom Presentation:
In-depth training of vehicle rescue from planning, organizing, responding and the strategy/tactics of vehicle rescue. Vehicle construction and tool application (hydraulic/non-hydraulic/hand) will be taught. How to create safe areas on the road, identify hybrid/electric cars, defeat SRS systems, and scene safety. Vehicle tool tactics including rigging and lifting cars and heavy commercial vehicles. Students will participate in table top scenarios of motor vehicle crashes. The day ends with hands-on lab training on proper equipment checks and field maintenance techniques.

DAY #2 Bread/Butter Vehicle Rescue Techniques:
This class addresses all the techniques you need for day-in/day-out vehicle rescue, great refresher class, and a building block for concepts learned in Day #1. This class features detailed instruction in stabilization, tool application, hydraulic/non-hydraulic, and basics of patient handling. To be a fully rounded vehicle rescue technician you must know tool options and different ways to get the job done. The day wraps up with the class practicing everything they have learned in a controlled evolution.

DAY #3 Vehicle Rescue Advanced Techniques 1:
Day 3 presents more difficult challenges to the student, it begins with a warm up of bread/butter (door/roof/dash) rescue but then scenarios quickly escalate into situations that will need technician level skills to complete. Again the day completes with a realistic based vehicle rescue evolution for the class to apply and practice what they have learned.

DAY #4 Vehicle Rescue Advanced Techniques 2:
On Day 4, while still making sure each student is competent in basic skills this class truly goes to the next level. Lifting/spreading operations with an emphasis on optional tool packages, victims trapped in cars impaled with a fence posts, commercial vehicle rescue, and class final scenario.
