Trench Rescue

Trench Rescue Technician

Howell, Michigan is ground zero for trench rescue.

Published

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.

USAR 2

Take a look at the new Springdale Fire Department USAR 2.

The City of Springdale is a diverse and friendly community. As the fourth-largest city in the state of Arkansas, Springdale has almost 80,000 residents and is located in Washington and Benton counties in the northwest corner of the state at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Springdale is 42 square miles with more than 900 lane miles.

Springdale is a great place to catch a ride on the Arkansas and Missouri Railroad in a beautifully restored turn-of-the-century passenger car, downtown Springdale, AR also home to the Shiloh Museum, which offers Ozark history and buildings dating back to the 1850s.

The Springdale Fire department serves the community with an all-hazards approach which means they respond to both man-made and natural disasters including Emergency Management, EMS, Fires, Hazardous Materials and Rescue.
