Level I – This class will teach your members to safely and rapidly rescue a victim, write SOP’s that protect the members and department from liability, properly handle patients to prevent further injury and increase survival chances, and many other techniques that need to be used to greatly increase the odds of a successful rescue and the safety of the rescuers. No prior experience is necessary and Certifications for either full Surface Ice Rescue Technician or Operations Level is available. Added to the class again this year for all students is a specific EMS session addressing patient handling, cold water emergencies and patient care. A reduced cost, 4 hour session is available for EMS personnel who do not want to take the full Ice Rescue class but want to learn about the medical concerns and procedures. They will also be introduced to the operations and made aware of the procedures for Tenders and Ice Rescue Technicians however no on ice or hands on training will be conducted. See the attached outline for some of the questions which will be answered during this part of the class.
