“Rescue Challenge is a great opportunity to work together as a team and find your deficiencies so you can continue to improve!”

— Matt Ptaszynski, CHS McPherson RefineryRoco Rescue Challenge 2024: Oct 16 & 17th at the Roco Training Center

ROCO RESCUE CHALLENGE is a scenario-based event, focused on confined space and high angle rope rescue in industrial and urban settings. Scenarios are designed by Roco instructors to be realistic and challenging. Scores are given and trophies awarded, but Rescue Challenge is really more a learning event than a competition with skill-building and teamwork being the ultimate objectives.

Who Attends Roco Rescue Challenge?

All rescue teams, both industrial and municipal, will benefit from attending Rescue Challenge. The event is set up so that a team’s capability or experience level really doesn’t matter. Each team is simply responding like they would if that scenario happened at their facility. Our expert evaluators provide tailored feedback with the sole intention of helping teams improve as much as possible. Observers are also welcome.

How Does Rescue Challenge Work?

Roco Rescue instructors first brief the teams on the scenario. Then teams are “on the clock” to devise and execute a plan to safely rescue the victim(s). Roco instructors closely monitor each team and provide oral and written feedback at the end. Challenge removes teams from the comfort of their home turf and presents them with rescue scenarios that test not only their technical rescue skills but also their ability to work as a team and to think and plan under pressure.

How Will Rescue Challenge Benefit My Team?

Realistic scenarios are designed with teaching goals that require different rescue and rigging skills. For example, some of the scenarios include simulated IDLH rescue entries with the use of SAR and SCBA equipment. Others include single-person and multi-casualty scenarios with a mix of manikins and live victims/evaluators as patients.

Over the course of two intense days, teams will satisfy the annual minimum practice requirements of OSHA 1910.146 PRCS. You will also…

  • Document your team’s confined space response capabilities with a written report.
  • Meet practice requirements in all six confined spaces types based on OSHA criteria.
  • Identify deficiencies in order to make improvements.
  • Confirm individual skills proficiency.
  • Learn from participating in realistic rescue scenarios.
  • Gain confidence in your skills and teamwork abilities.
  • Enjoy excellent training while interacting with rescue professionals.
  • Share ideas, experiences, and techniques with teams from across the nation.

“At the end of the day, it made our team better in our craft, and ultimately it will make us better able to serve the citizens of our community.”

— Seth Stevenson, Baton Rouge Fire DepartmentRoco Rescue Challenge 2024: Oct 16 & 17th at the Roco Training Center
