MUSAR has been providing technical rescue training since 1991.  Their instructors come from the fire service and have real-life rescue experience. Based off many USAR folks that I talked to, Howell, Michigan is the place to go to stay on the leading edge with trench rescue. For the last several years a great friend from across the pond would travel to Michigan to take the latest trench rescue program from the Michigan Urban Search And Rescue Training Foundation.  Irakli West from Heavy Rescue Germany is that friend.

Below are the photo summary of each day’s activities.
