Progressive Rescue Solutions, Inc., and the Scappoose Rural Fire Protection District, will be hosting a Progressive Rescue Technician I/II course in Scappoose, OR. The course will be taught by PRS, Inc. Senior Instructor Jerry Smith. Jerry has 30 years of teaching experience, and has been teaching in the Scappoose and St. Helens area for 15 years.

Progressive Rescue Technician I/II: is a 40-hour course in Rope Rescue Techniques. The course was developed to enable the student to combine the Progressive Rescue Technician Courses I and II in a convenient five-day package. The course begins with a classroom review of equipment, knots, and safety, the class then moves outside for “hands on” work with anchoring, belaying, mechanical advantage raising systems, Lowering systems, Pick-offs and Patient Packaging. We will do as many high and low angle Scenarios, as time will permit. This course is accredited through the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training as meeting the educational requirements for NFPA 1006 Rope Rescue Technician.

Students will need to bring their own helmet, boots, gloves, and headlamps. You should also bring any other personal gear that you already have, such as your rescue harness. PRS, Inc. will provide all of the equipment that will be used. Optional: Goggles (or some form of eye protection) knee pads, thermos for water, etc.

Students will be responsible for their own lodging and meals. Upon receipt of your completed registration form and payment, a list of motels and a map of the local area will be forwarded to you along with your confirmation letter.
