This course teaches self-rescue and the rescue of lost and/or trapped firefighters.

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. Don't miss this class.

Special Instructions: Students must be able to obtain a proper seal with the SCBA facepiece. It is recommended by UFRA that all students be clean shaven before attending this class. Students must be in good physical condition and capable of working in a high stress survival training environment.
