In compliance with NFPA 1670 and 1006 our Operations (Intermediate) level class is designed to give the attendee a working knowledge of scene operations and basic auto rescue skills and techniques.
We then give an introduction into the techniques of the next level, hoping to give the attendee an incentive to continue learning.

Intermediate Auto Extrication (Operations Level) 20 hrs


This class is designed to provide the student with a working knowledge of the requirements specified in chapter 2 of NFPA 472 standard (6-2.1) Response to Hazardous Materials.

NFPA 1670 chapter 6, Operations level technical rescue functions, 

NFPA 1006 (6-1.1-6-1.8). Operations level functions.


The NFPA establishes an Awareness, Operations and Technician level for vehicle and machinery rescue much like the field of hazardous material emergency response.  Each level has its own capabilities as well as limitations.


 Operations level includes the capability of hazard recognition, equipment use, and techniques necessary to safely and effectively support, and participate in, a technical rescue incident.  Operations are carried out under the supervision of Technician-level personnel.


Class Overview:

Upon completion of this course, attendees should have a working knowledge of:

  • Scene safety, and safety zones,
  • An awareness of scene management procedures
  • Vehicle stabilization, (both single and multiple car)
  • Determining access and egress points for the safe removal of victims and crew.
  • Basic and intermediate level extrication techniques
  • Isolation of potentially harmful sources (airbag systems, fuel systems, hybrid cars, compressed gas inflators, struts, etc.)
  • Recognizing  potential for fire, and establishing fire protection.
  • Basic patient care and packaging.

This class is open to a maximum of 40 students.              Tuition: $125.00
