Basic Vehicle Rescue Awareness BVRA
START DATE & TIME:
- Sat., February 7, 8 a.m.
COURSE REGISTRATION IS RESTRICTED TO QUALIFIED FIRST RESPONDERS. This is the first of a three course series, jointly sponsored by the Academy and the Department of Health EMS Office. Successful completion of all three courses within eighteen months will result in joint SFA/DOH certification as a vehicle rescue technician. The Pennsylvania Vehicle Rescue Training Curriculum places emphasis upon the development of knowledge and skills to be used by rescue personnel to achieve a safe and efficient vehicle rescue operation. While not teaching patient care, i.e. medical treatment, this course will provide those rescue personnel with no formal medical training with a strong orientation to patient-related rescue. Upon the completion of this course, the student will have an understanding of vehicle rescue, hazards of vehicle rescue operations, and ICS phases of vehicle rescue. The student will gain an understanding of vehicle technology and design. This course is intended for personnel who need to have an awareness of vehicle rescue operations and how to assist a rescue company at a rescue scene. Students will need TURNOUT GEAR and EYE PROTECTION.
