At Long Island Rescue we provide the best in Trench Collapse training and equipment to handle Trench Collapse Incidents.

Choose from any one, or all of our Trench Collapse courses:

Awareness - Long Island Rescue’s TCA program is designed for Fire/Rescue personnel that are responsible for responding to and operating at Trench Collapse Incidents (TCI). Our TCA program ensures that Fire/Rescue Personnel have the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA) to Function at a TCI. TCA is the minimum level capability of Fire/Rescue Personnel that respond to Trench or Excavation Accidents. Awareness level trained personnel may make assessment and resource decisions, perform some operations but rarely will ever be involved in the actual rescue operation involving entry into a confined space. TCA level training is designed to keep Fire/Rescue personnel that have responded to, or are operating at a TCI ALIVE.
