Structure Collapse Rescue

Structure Collapse Rescue

Structural collapse rescue is a convergence of the technical rescue disciplines. It involves utilizing techniques from trench rescue, confined space rescue, rope rescue, vehicle/machinery rescue and hazardous materials. In addition, it involves the understanding of physical forces acting on a structure, and the application of counter-forces to reduce rescue risk to a tolerable level in order to perform rescues.
