Class: Back to Basics Rescue

Modern rescue tools and techniques have come a long way since the 1970s but just because a technique is old doesn't mean it still won't work!  

Many forgotten, misunderstood, and unappreciated tools and techniques will be reviewed during this ALL HANDS ON class that will challenge your rescue skills and provide you with the knowledge needed to use “Old School” techniques in modern rescue situations.
