OSR - On Site Rescue

On Site Rescue is revolutionizing technical rescue, professional, and safety training by bringing customized training to the men and women in search and rescue, industry, and recreation that desire the training needed to perform these tasks in a safe and efficient way. Our training meets or exceeds the standard of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). By bringing the training to you, the programs can be molded to meet the unique needs of your organization, and the training can take place in your jurisdiction, on your waters and in your areas of response.  Training at your location also allows On Site Rescue to aid the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) in meeting the NFPA requirement of training all employees to local hazards.  However, the skills learned are transferable to all rescue situations, while allowing for training that is catered to the more specific needs of your locality.
