Rope Rescue Operations - Level I : 40 Hours

Course Description

The scope of this course is to prepare local responders to operate as a local member of a regional team within NIMS at an event requiring a statewide response that has resulted in the need for low or high angle rescue. This course provides personnel with the basic knowledge and skills needed to perform rescues using rope systems. The class will cover the use of rope, rope equipment, hardware, construction of mechanical advantage systems, belay and safety systems, anchor systems, patient packaging self-rescue and vertical rescue litter handling techniques. Special consideration will be given to the policies of standard-making agencies such as OSHA, ANSI, NFPA, and others.
