Basic Vehicle Rescue Technician BVRT
COURSE REGISTRATION IS RESTRICTED TO QUALIFIED FIRST RESPONDERS. This is the final course 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 resuce personnel to achieve a safe and efficient vehicle rescue operation. While not teaching patient care, i.e. medical treatment, this program will provide those rescue personnel with no formal medical training with a strong orientation to patient-related rescue. This course is intended for personnel who have already completed BVR Awareness and BVR Operations courses in the past. This course gives the student the knowledge of power and tool usage and disentanglement techniques. Student will need TURNOUT GEAR AND EYE PROTECTION.
