6:30 PM Start on August 24    8:30 AM – Start August 25
Hosted by Greenwood Fire Department – Station 98 3727 Birney Avenue in Moosic, PA

From a hand stuck in a fan  to a torso beneath a heavy piece of machinery, a strong command presence with a clearly defined strategy to execute the rescue is critical.  While these calls may be infrequent, an appropriate response to a machinery entrapment can mean the difference between life and death.

Students will be challenged in intense hands on scenario based exercises that will require a strong command presence, development of a strategy and execution of tactics to successfully complete the rescue. This program will be mentally and physically challenging for all participants.
