As the AHJ, your group must determine the level of training each person on your team will receive and how each standard will be followed. No matter what your training goals, we can set up a program to fit your department's individual needs.

NFPA 1670 Standard outlines the level of “functional capability” for organizations like fire departments, search and rescue teams etc. who respond to technical search and rescue incidents. The goal of the 1670 Standard is to outline how to conduct operations safely and effectively while minimizing threats to rescuers. The 1670 Standard is intended to help the “Agency Having Jurisdiction” (AHJ) assess technical rescue hazards within a given response area, identify the level of operational capability required for each hazard, and establish guidelines for training and incident response. It is primarily used by emergency response agencies to guide their technical rescue training, equipment and operations. All of our techncial rescue courses meet and exceed this standard.
