CLINICIAN AWARENESS PROGRAM
This was one of the most profound experiences and immersion that I have ever had. This gave me brand new and significant Insight on the experiences of fireman and what they battle on a daily basis.
This is Part 1 of a two-day full immersion course designed for clinicians and healthcare providers who desire to gain insight about the unique firefighter culture in order to be more effective in treating firefighters. The class provides a comprehensive look into understanding the culture, lingo, lifestyle of firefighters and details about their unique job stressors. This training is comprised of both classroom and live scenarios. This includes wearing turnout gear, watching a live burn training scenario, visiting fire stations and interacting with firefighters.
Due to COVID-19, the hands-on portion of this course will be postponed until it is deemed safe to conduct in-person sessions.
Clinicians who desire to be vetted for Redline Rescue are required to complete this two-day course and complete 10 hours of documented ride time at a fire rescue department. Clinicians who complete all of these requirements are eligible to obtain a Certification of Completion and will be included in the Redline Rescue database.
