The Structural Collapse Programs offered at the Illinois Fire Service Institute provides Rescue Technicians with the technical knowledge to access a major building collapse and take necessary actions to save lives and property. The Operations level (light-weight steel & wood) is offered at the IFSI campus and selected Regional Training Centers through Illinois. Collapse Technician level (heavy weight steel & concrete) is only offered at the IFSI Champaign campus "Rescue City." The goal of the Structural Collapse Program is to produce better-trained Technical Rescue Technicians with improved capability levels, better understanding of on-site incident management and search and rescue.
