Collapse Operations

NIPSTA’s Structural Collapse Operations program is designed to exceed the requirements outlined by the Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM), and provides students with the basic knowledge and skills needed to perform structural collapse rescue at the NFPA 1670 & 1006 Operations level. Students will leave prepared to operate as a member of a regional team capable of responding to statewide emergencies involving CBRNE or WMD, where lightweight structural collapse rescue may be needed.
