Northern California Rescue Training (NCRT) was founded by six Firefighters from the San Francisco Fire Department in 2002. For nearly 2 decades, our staff has been providing training courses, evolving into one of the industry leaders in technical rescue training.
Along with teaching and field experience, NCRT has been involved in specialized training at locations like the NASA/Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, the Center for National Preparedness in West Virginia, as well as Disaster City at Texas A&M.
NCRT's rescue training programs are provided through field-tested, safe and effective techniques and intensive hands-on courses. We offer high quality, realistic training to those responders that are required to perform High Risk / Low Frequency rescue operations. Our cadre of instructors are from Fire Departments around the state and members from both FEMA USAR CA Task Force 3 and 4. NCRT aims to provide you with the appropriate theories, knowledge, skills and real world tactics necessary to mitigate technical rescue incidents.
We provide instruction for Low Angle Rope Rescue Operations, Rescue Systems 1 and 2, Confined Space Awareness and Technician, Trench Rescue Technician, ICS, Safety Officer Development, Industrial Emergency Response Training and Industrial Refresher Training. NCRT’s training staff can travel to any location to provide LARRO training, or to any State Certified Site to provide Rescue Systems or Confined Space training as needed. We also have experience with State Fire Training Site Certification and course development.
All NCRT instructors are certified through State Fire Training and look forward to working with you, your department or agency.
