Checking out the ice
The Ice Rescue Awareness course is based on the NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications and is designed for rescue service personnel who respond to and support ice rescue operations.
This online program introduces water rescue subjects that include the safety concept, ice types anf formation, site assessment and hazard recognition, Personal Protective Equipment, and industry-mandated safety measures. This course is the pre-requisite for our ice rescue operations program.
This course is a two-day combination of theory and practical on-ice skills development. Designed for emergency service personnel who support ice rescue operations, this course meets NFPA 1006 Operations Standards. Participants will be able to safely and efficiently conduct rescue operations through assessing water and ice conditions in terms of hazards to the victim and rescuer.
This two-day course is an intensive practical application of ice rescue philosophy and techniques. Meeting NFPA 1006 standards, you will utilize previously learned skills in a variety of rescue situations while learning new rigging and rescue procedures. You will plan a response within the capabilities of available resources and implement a planned response consistent with the rescue team's capabilities.
Instructor development and certification programs are only available to active emergency service personnel through their service's registration.
