NFPA 1006 - Rescue Technician Professional Qualifications


The NFPA 1006 technical rescue standard divides rescue operations for emergency services into highly specialized disciplines. We are now proud to offer the following of those disciplines in individual week long programs. The disciplines of technical rescue would be of interest to any agency that participates in rescue operations or may assist in those rescue teams. The students will develop specialized skills focused on safe and effective mitigation of rescue environments, including Rope Rescue, Confined Space Rescue and Trench Operations.

Note: Fees do not include costs of course material/textbooks.

Application for ProBoard and IFSAC certificates can be downloaded from the Office of the Fire Commissioner.

Vehicle and Machinery Rescue Level I
ID #RT113

This course covers rescue planning and implementation for victims trapped in passenger vehicles and light machinery. You’ll learn about personnel and scene safety, vehicle identification, hazard control fire protection and stabilization, identification and creation of entry and exit points and patient disentanglement as priorities in planning, executing and terminating the rescue. Teamwork within the incident management system is also emphasized as is the use of specialized extrication tools and patient immobilization, packaging and transfer devices.

Vehicle and Machinery Rescue Level II
ID #RT123

This course covers rescue planning and implementation for victims trapped in commercial heavy vehicles or large machinery. It prepares you for the complexities encountered at a commercial heavy vehicle or large machinery incident and guides you through planning, size-up, and execution of the rescue. Emphasis is placed on personnel and scene safety, vehicle construction and hazard control, stabilizing of commercial/heavy vehicles, and patient disentanglement. You will learn to identify access and egress points and acquire the skills needed to operate specialized equipment used to disentangle and remove trapped victims.

Confined Space Rescue Level I and Level II
ID #RT111/121

This week-long textbook-based course teaches the student to become proactive in rescue by recognizing the hazards of a confined space, identifying which of those hazards can be managed and taking the proper steps to safely and effectively manage the hazard through basic and advanced skill sets. Skills that are covered include pre-planning a rescue, air monitoring, lockout/tagout, ventilation and inerting, using ICS, strategic rescue factors, safety, providing built in rescue equipment and managing the hazards of a confined space, as well as a critical discussion about accident prevention.

Trench Rescue Operations Level I and Level II
ID #RT112/122

This textbook-based course takes the student from the basic information required for recognizing hazards that are specific to trench emergencies through to the necessary skills required to safely perform a rescue involving a trench or excavation site. Trench Rescue Operations Level I and Level II provides a combination of theoretical and practical skills training. Level I training involves trenches that are no deeper than 2.4 m and are non-intersecting and includes basic shoring and sheeting techniques, site operations, personal protective equipment, and hazard monitoring and control as well as patient extrication techniques. Level II training includes more complex safety systems required for performing rescues in trenches deeper than 2.4 m or that intersect (such as ‘T’ or ‘Y’ excavations). Training includes lifting and stabilization with heavy equipment, specialized and supplemental shoring and sheeting, specialized trench safety systems, hazard assessment, monitoring and control, ventilation techniques and patient extrication techniques.
