Our firefighter survival course focuses on three key components in dealing with firefighter survival: the mental capacity, hazard recognition, and self-rescue.
This portion of the course is explained and examined to understand our psychological and physiological make up. We look into how humans react to stress and what we can expect when placed in a survival situation. Understanding how our bodies react will allow us to better manage these reactions in the event of a survival situation. Along with this, we will push you into environments that will demonstrate how your body reacts to stressful situations.
This portion of the course begins to introduce you into situations that will require self-rescue. By identifying these common environments it will allow you to progress through you steps to identify steps and progress through the situations. We examine the calling of the mayday while working on focusing our fight or flight emotions to remain productive. Providing simple yet effective skill sets to assist you in effective self-rescue.
In this portion we blend the mental capacity and the hazard recognition while allowing you to work through scenarios. These scenarios progress while causing you to perform key self-rescue techniques for yourself and for your immediate partner/s. When working in IDLH atmospheres we tend to work in a minimum of twos. Statistics show that a significant amount of maydays occur with in arms reach of another firefighter and we feel that need a strong focus on initial assessment and moving of a downed firefighter is a top priority. This in mind we focus on providing you with skills for immediate removal of yourself and your partner.
This is a physically and mentally demanding course that is 16 hours, but we can tailor the course to cover specific portions of the program in 4hr or 8hr courses.
