The Phoenix area is fortunate to have a large regional technical rescue program. However, introducing new devices and procedures can be challenging because we want everyone to receive the same training so we’re all on the same page. It’s a safety issue.
One of those exciting new tools, the CMC MPD, offers a large enough improvement in safety and efficiency to make it worth the effort of properly implementing it into our program as a core tool.
We wanted to know the best way to bring the MPD into our regional toolbox so we asked CMC Rescue if they could help us.
CMC agreed to come out for two days and give four train-the-trainer classes. We reached out to instructors from all of the teams in the Phoenix region and throughout much of Arizona and 48 rescue instructors took the four-hour MPD class put on by CMC Rescue School senior instructor LeRoy Harbach.
We made three highlight videos to capture this excellent class and to use as a reference for our instructors and team members. We share them here in partnership with CMC Rescue.
