1st ever Carroll County, Maryland program!

Being held Friday, April 28, 2017 –Sunday, April 30, 2017
This newly developed program has only been offered once before and is now being offered in Central Maryland.
First presented in Adams County, PA last fall, this course received great reviews and brought inquiries from several other jurisdictions to offer additional programs. The “Technical Rescue Weekend” presents participants with several multi-disciplined technical rescue
scenarios which will challenge new and experienced rescuers alike!

The program begins with a short Friday evening session that looks at some of the newer
technology in rescue equipment that will be used during the course. It also reviews a few safety
parameters and puts everyone on the same page regarding safety requirements during the
practical scenarios. Saturday and Sunday will bring 2 full days of unique and difficult technical
rescue scenarios. The scenarios will combine various disciplines of technical rescue such as auto
extrication while suspended from rope systems, confined space scenarios with heavy rigging
problems, etc. Below are some example pictures from the 2016 Adams County, PA program.
Listen to what participants of the PA program had to say:
“Everything was set perfect and everything had a challenge”
“Instructors brought a wealth of knowledge and practical application”
“Really fun program with valuable training”...”the facility was great and unique”
“Very hands on, real life training”...”Great instructors that teach down to earth”
This was “an amazing course...I learned a lot and would definitely take it again”
