Technical Rescue Team (TRT)

Technical Rescue Technicians (TRT) respond to extreme rescue situations, such as building collapses and emergency shoring operations, trench/excavation emergencies, confined-space rescue, high-angle/ low-angle operations and vehicle extrication/stabilization operations.

The TRT members receive extensive training, and operational and technical-level certifications – and demonstrate proficiency in special rescue operations before and during their assignment as team members. These requirements are in addition to their firefighting and paramedic educational requirements.
