We have designed our disaster management training to be short, no nonsense course packed with valuable information that will save lives. “Disaster Survival Skills” will teach your emergency response teams the basics of dealing with a major disaster. We have included the techniques and practices of professional rescuers and focused on the key essentials to provide your employees with… real world solutions.
Our one-day workshop consists of the following four modules:
- Light Urban Search & Rescue
- Disaster First Aid
- Fire/Utility Control
Light Urban Search & Rescue
Training is based on past disasters where the majority of rescues were of a light nature. These rescues were accomplished within the first hours of a disaster. Only a few of the rescues required specialized Heavy Rescue Teams. Having on site personnel trained in Light Urban Search & Rescue will enable employees to form rescue teams using the Incident Command System (SEMS). Search with the latest techniques and use forcible entry skills to gain access to victims. Learn the proper methods for removal of trapped and un-trapped victims using various lifts and carries. Safety is a priority and is stressed throughout the training.
Will provide your employees with the skills to manage the overwhelming number of injured victims you may be confronted with after a large scale disaster. How will you decide who to treat? What injuries are the most important? How will you manage the chaos? As part of our one day workshop you will learn how to manage this seemingly impossible scene by using a system called Triage, from the French word meaning “to sort”. This system is used today by our paramedics and firefighters to sort victims and prioritize their treatment during mass casualty incidents. These very same skills can work for you.
Using the same lifesaving techniques learned in Triage and combining some new information, you can continue your lifesaving measures while providing practical comfort and treatment for your victims.
“Disaster First Aid” teaches the basic precepts of emergency medical care with an emphasis on practical information that will be relevant when most other resources are not available. This module will give you real world solutions for long term care. We can share special techniques we’ve used on large scale disasters to make your emergency manageable.
Is dangerous and certainly not for the untrained. This is why this training is so important. It teaches the basics of fire behavior, fire type and recognition. Each student is then given the opportunity to extinguish a live fire under supervision. The students also learn how to control the utilities and prevent further damage to your site.
