1.1* Scope. This standard establishes the minimum job performance requirements (JPRs) necessary for fire service and other emergency response personnel who perform technical rescue operations. A.1.1 The committee believes that this document specifies the minimum standards for technical rescuers. The committee recognizes that emergency services organizations might have to invest considerable resources to provide the equipment and training needed to perform technical rescues safely and efficiently. The committee does not mean to imply that organizations with limited resources cannot provide technical rescue services, only that the individuals charged with performing technical rescues be qualified at the operations or technician level according to this standard.
