The following information provides an overview of the various types of vehicle rescue presentations, workshops, and seminars available from Ron Moore and his University of Extrication. The content and delivery of all presentations is designed to specifically address NFPA #1670, Standard for Technical Rescue, Chapter 8 Vehicle Rescue, Operations Level and/or Technician-level competencies. All training programs coincide with Vehicle Rescue 1-2-3, the training textbook written by Ron Moore.
Presentations are delivered in a classroom setting, as a workshop, or delivered to a large audience in an auditorium-type setting and can be customized in length to fit a one-hour, 90-minute or three hour timeframe. Combinations of various training modules can fill an entire day for a “large group” setting. Presentations delivered as hands-on classes are typically one day(8-hour) or two days(16-hour) in length. The Hands-On programs can be presented on either weekdays or weekend days at the discretion of the Host Agency.
University of Extrication programs are delivered all across the United States and Canada. Some of these programs are delivered at national conferences or seminars such as Firehouse World in San Diego or at Firehouse Expo in Baltimore. Most of the University of Extrication programs however are customized programs delivered for a specific department or for one ‘Host’ department with mutual aid, neighboring departments invited in to attend and participate.
“Leave Behind” Material
As a bonus, the Host Agency is provided with a CD-ROM that includes all the University of Extrication PowerPoint programs used during the training plus personal instructor notes, skills sheets, resource materials, etc. Permission is granted to the Host Agency to freely duplicate this disc and provide to each participating agency as a seminar handout for local department training purposes.
