Structural Collapse Operations - Level I : 46 Hours

Student Fee

Class specific

Course Description

This course is FEMA approved and may also eligible for certification with ProBoard. The scope of this course is to prepare responders to operate as a local member of a regional team within the NIMS at a CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, or Explosive) WMD event 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 incident involving WMD. 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.

 

NOTE:

Fire department members that intend to seek Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) certification in Structural Collapse Operations, may require completion of other certification requirements or courses (eg. Technical Rescue Awareness, Hazardous Materials Awareness/Operations, NIMS etc.)  prior to submission of OSFM paper work. Please refer to the OSFM site or contact OSFM directly for specific details and information.
