Motorsports Rescue Course


The newly revised Motorsports Rescue Course gives a more detailed awareness of hazards, tools and techniques for agencies who respond to and stand-by at motorsports events. Extrication principles learned in the Basic (NFPA Awareness and Operations Level) Extrication Program are built upon to enhance the rescuer’s efficiency and performance in unique and challenging scenarios based off of real-life situations. This course offers more one on one instruction and engages the student’s outside-the-box thought process. Topics covered include hazards, hazard mitigation, live fire suppression, communications, driver care and driver removal techniques, as well as, extrication tactics specifically related to race cars. This is taught on a regional basis by TARS certified Rescue College level instructors.
