  • Class Limit: 18 students
  • This is a program that teaches self-rescue and the rescue of lost and/or trapped firefighters.  This intensive training was developed in response to the tragic deaths of many firefighters in the nation, including Utah.  Many of those who perished did so because they could not get themselves out of various working conditions.  Unfortunately, on several occasions, as a fire community, we have also been unsuccessful in removing our fellow firefighters from difficult RIT situations.  We train our firefighters in confined space, hazardous materials, infectious disease control, and incident command; but we have left out the most important topic.... personal safety.  This course teaches all firefighters how to save their own lives and the life of another firefighter.  The Firefighter Survival course covers conditions and situations, which may pose a risk to firefighters, and offers solutions both in the classroom and on the drill ground.  These could be some of the most important days of your life.  Don’t miss this class.
