  • Training: Advanced Ice Rescue Scenarios

    ⚠️ SECOND DELIVERY! Saturday, Feb 18th 08:00-16:00 for $200 at 232 West Road, SW, CT
    The first one sold out fast and we had requests to have a second delivery so we listened! Limited availability to maintain 6:1 student to instructor ratio!
    This first of its kind class is being hosted by the South Windsor FIRE Department. This fast-paced course will focus on ice rescue emergencies that are often talked about at the round table but never practiced. Animal rescue situations, vehicles through the ice, and victim removal across unfavorable terrain are just a few of the scenarios students will be challenged with. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to put your skills to the test while learning new techniques to bring back to your department.
