In this CMC GRIMP North America 2022 recap, we are joined by T’NT Work and Rescue (@tntworknrescue). Coming from Canada with a combined 70 years of experience, T’NT has a diverse background in law enforcement, rope access, and fire rescue. Team captain Wade Going and team members Danny DeHaas, Scott Gibney, and Steve Minarchi speak to how they mentally prepared to compete head to head in each scenario and how they remained calm and collected throughout the two-day competition. They express how much they learned through the competition format and how they applied this to future training.

Overhead during the episode:

“The thing with competition that you can’t reciprocate in training is it really points out your weaknesses and it really points out your strengths. It will really influence our future training as to what areas we need to push more and which ones we feel we do well. I don’t think you can reciprocate that in training, it only comes out in healthy competition.”

“With our training down the road, we’re starting to look at a couple smaller groups that we can get together with so we can replicate the competition style. We get four or five guys on each team and have two simultaneous scenarios going where we’re training while competing against another team at the same time – increasing the stress level, and coming up with on the fly scenarios.”
