The Technical Rescue Size-Up: Where do you start

Thursday, April 27
Unlike fighting a fire, the technical rescue scenario does not have an acronym to help you make decisions regarding developing an incident action plan (IAP). We can't use RECEOVS or COAL WAS WEALTH for fire incidents to help us figure out the priorities of the emergency. This class highlights a new acronym that will help with all types of technical rescues. Whether a confined space, trench rescue, high angle rescue, or collapse, we can use this acronym to help us establish our priorities of the situation and help to develop an IAP. This session is designed for technical rescue individuals who want to make quick, accurate, and decisive decisions regarding these emergencies.'
