Rescue

The best rescue training includes extensive hands-on exercises in challenging, real-world environments. Courses in the Rescue Training Program prepare emergency response personnel to safely, efficiently and effectively perform rescue operations. Exercises include day and night scenarios and allow participants to apply skills at Brayton Fire Training Field Disaster City®. Rescue instructors have responded to some of the largest disasters on record, including the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, the space shuttle Columbia incident and Hurricane Katrina. Rescue training courses range from national certification courses to customized courses designed to meet an organization’s specific training needs. Rescue courses are offered globally, at the client’s site and at the Rescue Center and Disaster City in College Station, Texas.
