Fire, EMS, and Public Safety

Water Rescue

MCC is offering an Aquatic Search & Recovery Operations class on Oct. 17-18, 2014.

Billy Leach, Jr. will be presenting Aquatic Search and Recovery Operations: Searching for Missing Victims. ‘Fuzzy’ Lambert will be presenting details for the Humminbird Side Scan Sonar. Roxye Marshall (NC Marine TF5) will be presenting Teaming Technology for Successful Searches. There is no fee for this training for active members of emergency response teams.

LEARN THE FEATURES OF THE HUMMINBIRD SSS and how to use them to achieve better results. See all the new gear from Humminbird, and ask questions of the expert. An added bonus is that any agency that brings their Humminbird unit can have the software updated at no cost.

Friday’s session will offer classroom learning that is up-to-date, intensive, and interactive. An added bonus is a 100-page booklet provided to each attendee. It will provide details of the entire search process, including Step-by-Step for Aquatic Searches and a step-by-step process for sonar image interpretation.

Saturday’s session will feature hands-on training at Lake Tillery, near Troy. The hands-on opportunities will be very limited; first come-first served. While some are on-water, others will be involved with planning for a search.

Please call Angela Kennedy at 910-576-622 EXT 255 to register or if you have any questions!

Topics include CPR, airway management, patient assessment, hemorrhage control, basic pharmacological action, trauma treatment, medical, behavioral and environmental illness treatment and patient transport. The training environment incorporates some lecture-style instruction, but the majority of the skill training will take place in practical, hands-on situations. To become certified, students must take the NC State Certification Exam which is offered at several locations through the state several times a year. Prerequisites: High school diploma or GED.
