The new 40-hour Roco Urban/Industrial Rescue Team Operations™ course replaces Roco’s Industrial Rescue III™ but remains a predominantly scenario-based course. It is designed to challenge individual rescuers (and teams) in a wide variety of confined space and high angle rescue scenarios. It provides participants with new and more advanced techniques to implement in numerous practice scenarios that allows them to build upon their essential skills and teamwork abilities.
As the rescue scenarios progress in difficulty, specific time limitations are used to create the experience of “working under pressure” for the participants just as in a real emergency. Instructors will provide a debriefing after each scenario of strengths and areas for improvement along with suggestions for enhancing rescue efficiency.
For courses at the Roco Training Center (or as the training location allows), practice scenarios will be conducted in all six (6) confined space types based on OSHA criteria. More complex scenarios, including simulated IDLH atmospheres, will require the use of breathing air equipment. This course meets the minimum annual practice requirements of OSHA 1910.146.
