FORT WORTH, Texas (May 12, 2015)
As part of its commitment to providing the most effective and relevant training to fire fighters and rescue personnel, Tarrant County College Northwest Campus Fire Service Training Center is conducting a Special Ops Training Swift Water Rescue Tech Refresher course. With the recent torrential rains in Tarrant County, residents throughout the county have depended on experts in emergency rescues to deliver them to safety.
The TCC course includes classroom sessions that identify different types of swift-water incidents and their hazards, rescuer safety, size-up, site safety, shore-based procedures, wading rescues and boat-based rescues. Students learn defensive swim techniques, throw bags, tension diagonals, shore-based rescue systems, boat-based rescue systems and boat-powered rescues.
