Looking for a career change?

Emergency response and rescue personnel perform the critical role of protecting people and assets before, during and after crises occur (such as manmade or natural disasters).

Their responsibilities include developing emergency response procedures, testing these procedures, conducting training exercises, planning and coordinating on-the-ground efforts during emergencies and assisting with recovery efforts.

Rescue exercise

This is a picture of Pinnacle Safety and Training team members testing a rescue plan we developed late last year for a large building material supplier.

In this scenario, our team was rescuing an ‘injured’ worker from inside a mill, which had limited and challenging access.

Does this line of work look appealing to you? If so, we have a range of Emergency Response courses available, including Road Crash Rescue, Vertical Rescue and Confined Space Rescue.

Training was excellent, the level of knowledge the trainer had about the subject was great. The practical component was very well done, it gave a real insight into how what you were learning would be used in the field. The smaller class size allowed the trainer to give each individual the time they required to gain a full understanding of the course. Having spent a substantial amount of years in the Construction/Maintenance field, it was very refreshing to participate in training that wasn’t run with the aim of simply ticking a box. The trainer showed a commitment to ensuring everyone in the class would be completely able to go out into the work site & apply what they were learning with a good grasp on the responsibilities that come along with performing the task. It was a well run course & it was an enjoyable to attend.
