Road Side Rescue covers the fundamental low and steep angle rope rescue skills required for accessing a vehicle and its occupants down a roadside embankment.
The curriculum is very similar to our Technical Rope Rescue – Operator, but specifically focuses on bank-over vehicle rescue situations, and is therefore able to be delivered in a slightly shorter timeframe.
Note: This course is compliant with sections of NFPA 1670 standards, but does not meet or exceed them. To meet these standards, take a look at our Technical Rope Rescue – Operator course.

If you have a group that would like to review their training together, the training maintenance program may be right for you.
Your group pays the instructor’s daily teaching fee and travel costs associated with bringing the instructor to your training location, along with an annual fee to be part of the maintenance program. This is generally a pretty reasonable approach for training departments because:
it allows us to deliver the training in small chunks every year, rather than in one big chunk every three years
it gives department members more annual hands-on time with their skills
new members can integrate into maintenance programs by jumping on an open course from our public schedule
We track your members, and their status on course content completion within a three year cycle, which mirrors a traditional three year recertification cycle. It’s an excellent value for the cost, and allows you to review your skills in your own backyard.
The training maintenance program replaces the need to recertifiy your training on a traditional three year recertification cycle.
Sorry – there’s no individual audit program available for this course.
