Why Train With Long Island Rescue? Hear What Our Clients Have to Say

FAST/RIT Training

"Having attended numerous trainings over the past 20 years of service, I can honestly say that your training provided the most realistic scenarios for our members. I personally know that each member walked away with many new skills. The instructors of Long Island Rescue were extremely knowledgeable and knew how to motivate and inspire. They taught by example and were not hesitant to get down and dirty with the men, a trait that is all too often not seen with instructors. We again extend our gratitude to you and your instructors for the tremendous impact you've had on our department."
- Rich Cafarelli, 1st Assistant Chief, Holtsville FD (NY)
Course: FAST/RIT Training (March 2009)

"On behalf of the Officers and Firefighters of the Manheim Township Fire/Rescue Department I would like to again pass along our gratitude to you and your associates for a GREAT program this past weekend. The Program lived up to and far exceeded our expectations both educationally and in "real world" need-to-know practical evolutions. The presentation and all of the practical stations were in-depth, challenging and relevant to our job as Fire/Rescue providers." - James R. Artz, Rescue/Firefighter Program Coordinator, Manheim Township Fire Rescue (PA)
Course: FEMA USAR Cutting, Burning Program (December 2008)

FAST/RIT Training

"My department just finished the FAST/RIT class with Long Island Rescue, Inc. and all I can say is WOW! What a great class, with professional and hands-on instructors. The instructors taught the class in ways the members could apply it, not straight from a textbook. Joe D. was very flexible with the scheduling and really worked with us. This was a great class, taught by firefighters for firefighters. Everyone can't wait for the next class with Long Island Rescue, Inc. I can't say enough, but thanks." - Jeff Laureano, 1st Assistant Chief of Department, Roslyn Highlands Fire Co., NY
Course: FAST/RIT Training (November 2007)

The training provided by you and your instructors is invaluable. We are looking forward to continuing our training with Long Island Rescue to better improve our technical rescue skills and qualifications. Our department will always recommend Long Island Rescue to our brother firemen." - Chief Bob Ciafardoni, Centerport Fire Department (LINY)

Safety, Strategy and Tactics for the 1st Due Company Officer

"The training program taught here was extremely inspiring. The experience that Joe brings to the table is outstanding and the methodology of instruction works from the youngest to most tenured members. The message that he shared is an essential ingredient to a safe and effective fire or rescue agency...Long Island Rescue's motto is 'Experience is Paramount.' They not only live it; they help others to live through it." - Bob Parnell, Chief of Deptartment, Salisbury, NC
Course: Safety, Strategy and Tactics for the 1st Due Company Officer Training (October 2006)

Machinery Extrication & Impalement Course

"I've taken many courses as a firefighter and yours was by far one of the best! The scenario based lecture made the topic easy to understand, and the hands on gave us real life practice in different extrication techniques. The fact that Long Island Rescue went through the trouble of getting actual machines and took the time to realistically impale and entrap victims allowed us to learn and practice in a way that the usual "scenario" based course doesn't allow." - Firefighter David Topczynski, Holtsville Fire Department (LINY)
Course: Machinery Extrication & Impalement Course (October 2006)

Rescue Technician Rope Awareness Program

"What an impressive group of enthusiastic instructors who have a passion for the fire service...All around, one of the most educational courses our department has experienced in a long time. The level of instruction and guidance provided during the scenario based hands-on training is unparalleled in the fire service...I could not be happier with our recent training experience. It goes without saying that I would encourage other fire departments to take advantage of the exceptional training services that Long Island Rescue has to offer." - Chief John R. Giacoppi, Centerport Fire Department
Course: Rescue Technician Rope Awareness Program (September 2006)

HazMat Tech Refresher Course

"We had Joe and the 'boys' in to teach our HazMat Tech Refresher. It was an excellent class. The teachers were enthusiastic and really challenged us to think and overcome problems. The hands on scenarios were very realistic and with Long Island Rescue's help I am sure we are better prepared for the real thing. We will be looking to Long Island Rescue in the future for other training." - Assistant Chief Jim Yearsley, East Farmingdale Fire Company
Course: HazMat Technician Refresher Course
