The scope of this course is to prepare local responders to operate as a local member of a regional team within the NIMS that has resulted in the need for a Technician-level, Permit-required confined space rescue. The Confined Space Rescue Technician course has been designed in accordance with NFPA Standards. The class covers the federal and state regulations; use of specialized equipment for atmospheric monitoring, ventilation, and isolation; supplied air use inside a confined space; and employment of rescuer-constructed retrieval systems. Special emphasis will be given to rescuer safety, scene management, patient care and movement utilizing partial-body patient immobilization, and the construction and operation of retrieval systems. This course includes simulated rescue evolutions requiring a mixture of disciplines, challenging the responder to deal with performing a rescue in a contaminated atmosphere.
IFSI prerequisites are based on Illinois and NFPA standards. Equivalencies from other agencies will be reviewed upon request.
