Structural Collapse Rescue Awareness and Operations

Structural Collapse Rescue Awareness and Operations : 46.00 Hours

Course Description

The scope of this course is to prepare responders to operate as local members of a regional team within the National Incident Management System (NIMS) at an emergency incident requiring statewide response that has resulted in the failure of a building constructed of wood, masonry, or pre-fabricated light metal materials. This course is extensively hands-on and prepares the student to operate safely and efficiently at a building collapse. It offers practice in cutting, breaching, lifting, stabilizing, searching, shoring, packaging, and removing victims from a simulated collapse environment. This course is intense and physically demanding, but the competence and confidence that is gained is worth the sweat that is lost.
