With special permission Rescue 3 South Asia has been allowed to offer this community level disaster preparation course. The different topics that will be taught include safety during natural disasters and how to prepare prior to the event.
Management of Water and Flood Incidents
This course is designed to meet the needs of incident commanders at water and flood incidents and provide them with the underlying knowledge and skills to
successfully manage such operations. It also provides incident commanders with sufficient personal skills and experience to safely operate in the ‘warm’ zone at these incidents. Personnel who will most benefit from this class are individuals who will manage teams of responders and rescuers at water and flood incidents, in particular Command Level Fire, Police and Ambulance service incident commanders, rescue team leaders and coastguard team leaders. The course will also be highly beneficial to those holding a managerial position within other response agencies.
Wilderness First Responder
The Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course is the recognized industry standard for those who work as backcountry trip leaders, camp counselors, mountain guides, river guides and ski patrollers. The WFR is 72-80 hours long (7 to 10 days), and is a comprehensive
and in-depth look at the standards and skills of dealing with: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies and Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries and Medical Emergencies. Although these appear to be the same basic topics covered in our two-day WFA course, they are covered far more extensively and there is much more hands-on practice. Additional topics, such as CPR, are also included.
