Y-617 - Firefighter Rescue - (16 hours)
This intensive training course was developed in response to the tragic deaths of many firefighters across the nation in the past several years. Many of those who perished did so because they could not get out of the fire building or area where they were working. We train our firefighters in confined space, hazardous materials, infectious disease control, and incident command but until now there was no training course that teaches our firefighters how to save their own lives. The Firefighter Survival and Rescue courses are designed to fill this void by reviewing conditions and situations which may pose a risk to firefighters and by teaching firefighters how to help themselves in emergency conditions.
