Fire Science: Technical Rescue Awareness


(F36) Certificate

The Technical Rescue Awareness certification provides first responders with the skills needed to identify a rescue situation’s specific hazards and implement initial company operations. Structural collapse rescue, rope rescue, confined space rescue, vehicle and machinery rescue, water and ice rescue, wilderness search and rescue, trench and excavation rescue following OSFM and NFPA 1670 guidelines will be realized. The Office of the State Fire Marshall requires this course before a firefighter can be certified in any rescue subject area.
