Technical Rescue Team

The Technical Rescue Team is made up of firefighters from the Canton, Monmouth, Macomb and Galesburg Fire Departments. Each department and city contributes personnel and equipment to the team. The team trailer is housed here at CFD.

Team members must undergo 360 hours of initial training and then monthly in-house skills retention training, along with quarterly regional team training. The subject areas included are Trench Rescue, Rope/High Angle Rescue, Vehicle Rescue, Structural Collapse and Confined Space Rescue. The members of the team are trained to the Technician level in all of these specialties.
