Valley Fire & Rescue

WV Public Service Training is pleased to partner with Valley Fire & Rescue to provide you Ohio Valley Training Weekends. Each month, Valley will host a different class to enhance training. Attached, you will find the planned 2022 schedule. Each month, the next month’s course will be advertised and registration opened.

October’s Training Will Be: Farm Rescue

Please note: Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the original course planned for August, Basic Pump Operations, was cancelled and has been rescheduled for November 5 & 6, 2022.

Description:  This course was designed to provide firefighters, emergency medical and rescue personnel with knowledge of farm accidents, farm hazards, and general rescue/extrication procedures.  This course covers agriculture statistics, pre-incident planning, hazards, safety, scene size-up, resources, types of farm equipment, types of farm structures, types of injuries and rescue/extrication procedures.  The course is broken up into two days:  the first day is classroom work including classroom exercises, lecture, videos and slide presentations.  The second day consists of field exercises with an emphasis placed on:  tractor, power take off and farm implement stabilization, rescue and extrication procedures.  This course would be beneficial to responders who not only have farms in their response areas but also golf courses, industry, or any other business that uses agriculture types of equipment.  The course is designed for the potential rescuer to successfully respond to these types of emergencies in their areas.  The course concentrates on agriculture and agriculture incidents common for the local area.
