The course is geared to prepare firefighters, EMS personnel, foresters, and loggers in taking action to reduce severity of injury and increase the loggers chance of survival after a logging accident. Advance Logger Rescue is a program that teaches all participants how to handle an "in woods" rescue from the time a person has not arrived home until they are at a Level-1 Trauma Center.
Instructor Dana Hinkley is a retired captain (specializing in heavy rescue) from the Berlin, NH Fire Department. He has also spent the last 35 years working in the logging business with his father. Dana has developed the Logger Rescue courses and has trained hundreds of loggers, foresters and EMS personnel throughout the United State and Canada.
