About the Event

Rope Rescue Awareness/Operations (RRA/O) is a 40 hour CA State Fire Marshal certified course taught in a five-day format. RRA/O also serves as the new perquisite to RRT. This course provides information on low-angle and high-angle rescue, familiarizing participants with operation of simple, complex, and compound rope rescue systems in the low- and high-angle environment.

NCRT can travel to your area to deliver RRA/O as needed.
