PRI focuses on making you the most prepared for those lowest frequency events by relating material to your response area, showing you the newest equipment while making you proficient with your own, and providing hands-on simulation. All technical rescue courses are available in awareness, operations, and technician level and align with standards written in NFPA 1006.
