GRIMP™ North America is an international rescue skills challenge hosted by CMC on the magnificent Battleship Iowa in Los Angeles, California. We designed this event to provide an opportunity for education and spirited competition surrounded by peers.
CMC would like to thank all of the teams who participated in GRIMP North America 2019 and congratulate them on their outstanding efforts. Their skills, training and dedication to their profession were apparent in every rescue scenario. We would also like to recognize the Battleship IOWA Museum and thank the volunteer staff for their impeccable timing and service to the teams during the event. In addition, we appreciate our sponsors for their support in making this event an immensely successful and enjoyable one. Lastly, we want to extend a big thank you to all of the spectators who made the trek to join in on the action and cheer on our teams. It was undoubtedly a thrilling experience for all!
While each team was tested by the challenging environment of the Battleship IOWA Museum, we’re certain that the collaboration, learning and new perspectives drawn from GRIMP North America will have positive lasting impacts on the international rescue community.
