Course Description

The scope of this course is to prepare local 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 need for a permit required confined space rescue. Confined Space Rescue Operations course has been designed in accordance with NFPA 1670 Standard On Operations and Training For Technical Rescue Incidents, 1999 edition. The class covers the federal and state regulations, use of specialized equipment for atmospheric monitoring, commercial entry and retrieval systems, and employment of rescuer constructed retrieval systems. Special emphasis will be given to rescuer safety, scene management, patient care and movement, and the construction and operation of retrieval systems. Simulated rescue evolutions involving various rescue problems will be conducted.

Technical Rescue Awareness, Hazardous Materials Awareness/Operations, NIMS etc.)  prior to submission of OSFM paper work.
