2021 RMVR Fire & Rescue School

Saturday, April 10, 2021

Virtual via Zoom

This highly acclaimed school is for new and experienced volunteers (workers,) as well as drivers and crew members.  For 2021, RMVR’s Fire and Rescue School will be a virtual webinar where you can attend from the comfort of your home. There will not be a fee to attend but registration is required.  

RMVR’s Fire and Rescue School is the perfect opportunity for removing the cobwebs of winter, getting your questions answered, and preparing for this upcoming race season. Proper flag use and their meanings along with what RMVR volunteers do and why will be covered.  Basic safety and medical review will be shared along with learning (virtually) how to respond to a race incident. For novices, it is a great place to start. For drivers, it is a chance to learn worker safety procedures and their application during racing events.

 

Please download and print (or have available electronically) the Flagging & Communications Manual.

This highly acclaimed school is for experienced workers, new workers, drivers and crews. Professionals do all the emergency training. It’s free to all RMVR members, otherwise there is a small ($35) fee for non RMVR workers for the weekend.

It’s great for removing the cobwebs of winter, having your questions answered, and getting hands-on fire training and extrication practice. It’s a great chance to sit down and think about proper flag use and their meanings, and about what workers do and why. For novices, it’s a great place to start. For drivers, it is a chance to learn corner worker safety procedures and their application during racing events.

Marshals, please wear your whites, and bring your track gear bags. This is how we will show the newbies their options for track gear (and cut a day off the schedule). Bring sunscreen, a protective leather or heavy cotton jacket, gloves, and safety glasses for fire extinguisher training.

If not wearing whites, do wear comfortable cotton clothing that can get dirty. This is a hands on event. It’s Colorado, so be ready for cool and hot weather. We will be outside for some exercises.
