Emergency Services Machine Rescue

Pre-requisites

  • Standard First Aid with Level C CPR. A copy must be uploaded/attached as part of the application process.

What we offer

Machines and equipment are a part of our daily lives. When the human body becomes entangled, crushed, or impaled, quick rescue actions can save lives.
This course follows NFPA 1006 Chapter 13 and provides you with the techniques necessary to safely respond to an incident involving machinery rescue. Throughout the course, our experienced Instructors will provide you with the information to correctly handle these complex scenes and guide you through correct equipment manipulation to safely extricate patients. During the course, an emphasis is placed on tool practice and you will have many opportunities to utilize hand and power tools to complete disentanglements and rescues and develop confidence in your tool work through progressive skill stations.

Small class sizes and effective student to Instructor ratios allow you time to focus on your skill development. You’ll have time to work with tools and develop your comfort level so that you can have effective involvement in scenarios and emergencies.
