Hunterdon Training Facility
Out of County Fee: $180
While emergency response personnel are training to respond to suburban emergencies such as vehicle accidents, fires, and medical emergencies, seldom are they trained to respond to tractor roll-overs, PTO entanglements, pesticide exposures, and silo fires. Without adequate training, their efforts may be ineffective or even worsen the situation. This course focuses on the Farmedic program that trains personnel how to properly respond to rural emergencies. The program includes classroom work, videos, farm tours, modular practical stations, and “hands-on” extrications in real-life scenarios. This program has been very beneficial even in urban areas where personnel must deal with construction, landscaping, parks and industrial equipment. This course is designed to help achieve “Operations” and / or “Technician” level training in the Vehicle and Machinery Rescue discipline as outlined in NFPA 1670 (Standard on Operations and Training for Technical Search and Rescue Incidents).
PPE: Technical Rescue or Firefighter
