Brent Dubois educates from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) document 1670 Standard on Operations and Training for Search and Rescue Incidents. The standard identifies and establishes levels of functional capability for efficiently and effectively conducting operations at technical search and rescue incidents while minimizing threats to rescuers. Provisions define levels of preparation and operational capability and provide an outline of a system that progresses from the simple basic awareness level to the operations level, and, finally, to the technician level. While it covers the majority of rescue disciplines, Brent will cover swift water rescue including the cold zone, warm zone, hydrology, helical flow, and various rescue techniques.
