Mission
On order, the 911th deploys, conducts technical
rescue engineer operations, and provides military
assistance to civilian authorities in support of
MDW/JFHQ-NCRs defense of the National Capital
Region.

Mission Essential Task List
9
Capabilities
  • capable of deploying basic load of all classes
    of supplies and self sustaining for 72 hours 10
    days continuous ops (comparable to FEMA heavy
    USAR team)
  • deployable by rotary wing
  • or ground convoy
  • full spectrum technical
  • rescue response and recovery
  • assets heavy equipment
  • a substantial capability
  • not present in other heavy
  • rescue organizations

10
Capabilities
  • specialize in collapsed structure,
  • vertical, confined space, and
  • mine/tunnel rescue
  • provide immediate life
  • saving treatment and stabilization
  • of trauma victims
  • rapidly deployable
  • technical rescue company
  • - deploy Initial Response Team by air at N2 hrs
  • - convoy Main Body at N3 hrs

11
Full Spectrum Technical Rescue
Response
12
Technical Rescue
Normally exceeds the skills or tools associated
with firefighters and other emergency responders….
…JURISDICTION SELECTS RESPONSE NEEDS…
…911th structural collapse, confined space,
mine/tunnel, trench, and vertical rescue
13
Rope (Vertical) Rescue
The use of ropes and other devices to create
mechanical advantages for hauling, lowering, and
other means of reaching and recovering victims
14
Confined Space Rescue
  • Has limited or restricted means of entry or exit
  • Is large enough for an employee to enter and
    perform assigned work
  • AND is not designed for continuous occupancy by
    the employee

15
Mine Rescue
  • specialized job of rescuing miners and others
    who become trapped in mines
  • experienced with gases, ventilation, breathing
    systems, explosives

16
Mine Rescue
17
Collapsed Structures
  • Emergency Shoring It protects us!
  • Train and respond w/US Army Corps of Engineers
    Structural Specialist Program
  • Critical capability validated by Pentagon
    Mission on 11 SEP 01

18
Collapsed Structures
  • SHORING SIZE-UP
  • identify structural hazards, damage and
    potential victim locations
  • determine best method to mitigate the hazard and
    damage
  • determine the type placement of shoring
    systems in relation to structural hazards and
    potential victim location

19
HAZMAT Operations
  • capable of responding to and assessing various
    HAZMAT/CBRN situations
  • limited ability to contain, decontaminate, and
    rescue from HAZMAT / CBRN
  • environments
  • trained to HAZMAT
  • Operations level by
  • Arlington County FD
  • maintain one WMD
  • CST trained NCO in
  • the company

20
Trench Rescue
  • TRENCH RESCUE a subset of confined space
    rescue that involves shoring, collapse
    prevention, and ventilation. Trenches of some
    form will exist in any collapsed structure
  • OFFENSIVE TRENCHING creating a trench as a
    means to further another rescue method (pictured)
  • 911th rescuers are trained to Trench Rescue
    Operations level, with 15 Trench Technicians in
    the company

Using this trench offensively to breach a
basement concrete wall.
