CHALLENGES

BASIC LIFE SUPPORT

The Basic Life Support (BLS) challenge of the International Rescue and Emergency Care Association challenges each team, with their knowledge and skills, to perform real life scenarios utilizing skills such as scene size up, patient assessment, taking vitals, treating wounds, and providing accurate hand-off reports.

FIRST RESPONSE RESCUE

The First Response Rescue Challenge combines the medical skills of BLS with the rescue skills of Technical Rescue.  It is designed to train and challenge 4-rescuer engine companies that are likely to be first on the scene before the technical rescue teams arrive.

TECHNICAL RESCUE

The Technical Rescue Challenge of the International Rescue and Emergency Care Association challenges each team with their knowledge and skills to perform real life scenarios by using a minimal amount of equipment to achieve a safe and successful rescue.
