Trench rescue class

Station 56 and the Somerville Rescue Squad hosted a three day trench rescue training class by Rescue Products International.  Trench rescue Awareness was the topic for all responders Friday night.  Saturday and Sunday the class was split into two groups.  The first group was for members that have not had previous training.  This group received the trench rescue operations certification.  The second group consisted of members that have operations level training.  The second group worked on more technical scenarios such as deep trenches and “L” trenches. This training earned them the trench technician certification.  Congratulations to all the members from both organizations that participated in this extensive and demanding training.
