The North American Vehicle Rescue Challenge will be held between the dates of September 13th - 15th, 2018. This challenge is a TERC USA & TERC Canada sanctioned event open to all teams. If teams are not a current member of TERC USA, there will be a onetime fee of $150.00 to compete at the event along with the Entry Fee. Visit our website www.tercus.com to learn more about the TERC organization and its benefits. Individual and Team dues for previous members can be paid directly through the TERC website using PayPal.
Each team will participate in three challenge pits, Limited, Unlimited & Rapid Pits. The defining factor between the pits is the availability of rescue tools. The Limited Pit presents only hand and pneumatic tools, and the Unlimited pit, makes available all rescue tools, including heavy hydraulic rescue equipment. The teams have 20 minutes to safely extricate an entrapped patient (mannequin) from a simulated vehicle collision. The Rapid Pit is open to all tools but the teams will have only 10 minutes to safely extricate the patient from the scenario. The point scoring is primarily based on the command structure, hazard and scene control, patient and rescuer safety and the techniques used to disentangle the patient.
