Training the heroes of tomorrow.... TODAY
The Tennessee Association of Rescue Squads is an Association of Life Saving, Rescue, and First Aid Units with members organized, trained, and equipped for various types of rescue and first aid work.
The Association works for better recognition of organized Rescue and First Aid activities through organizations, government officials, agencies, and departments, on community and state levels. Membership in T.A.R.S. gives each of us direct participation in promoting this greater understanding and recognition of the organized rescue and first aid movement.

The 2022 Training Calendar is in the works. We have had several requests for agency only courses and are still scheduling some classes that were postponed in 2021.
As offered last year, we will continue to offer certain prerequisite courses online. Instructor Methodology is being offered seperate from the Instructor I offerings for EVOC and Awareness/Operations Vehicle Rescue. Swift Water Rescue Awareness is also being offered independent of Swift Water Rescue I. Both courses are pre-requisite classes to enter the Instructor I disciplines or Swift Water Rescue I courses respectively.
In the meantime, if your department is interested in hosting a College Level Course in 2022, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your course request.
