Structural Collapse involves searching, marking, gaining access to, packaging and removal of victim(s) that have become trapped in collapsed structures.
Techniques may include shoring, breaching and breaking of construction materials from basic timber to steel and reinforced concrete.
Confined Space Rescue
Provides the rescue of individuals that have become entrapped or injured in areas that have limited or restricted means of entry or exit and are not designed for continuous human occupancy.
Atmospheric hazards may be encountered due to lack of ventilation or the introduction of hazardous materials into the environment.
Trench Rescue involves the removal of victims that have become entrapped in excavation accidents or trench collapses that result in soil and/ or rocks falling or sliding in such a way as to prevent easy removal.
These rescues involve shoring (securing) of trench walls to allow rescue of the victim(s) and prevent additional collapses that could cause further harm or danger to the victim or team members.
