Critical Incident Response Course

Are you interested in helping others get through stressful events?

It is a sad truth that we live in a time where horrible events have become somewhat of a regular occurrence. The Critical Incident Response Management (CISM) team is dedicated to help those who have been effected by these events. This training is open to anyone involved in emergency services or education.

Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, this course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services for both the individual and for groups. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) will be outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several group crisis interventions, specifically demobilizations, defusings and the Critical Incident Stress
Debriefing (CISD).

Below is a link for the flyer of this class. If you would like to sign up please follow the instructions on the flyer. If you have any questions please contact Denise Thompson at or Chaplain Anthony Jimenez at

Rope Rescue ReSet Course


San Antonio, TX– Last week Bexar County District 7 Fire & Rescue participated in Rope ReSet course. This course trained the members of the Rescue Team on high-angle rescue situations.

This Rope Rescue ReSet course was a week-long training exercise that built upon the training that the Rescue had received months prior. During the week the team was able to build their knowledge on creating haul systems and how to maneuver while suspended in mid-air. This training was put to the test as the rescue team was told to repel over a hundred feet off a bridge and then climb their way up.

This knowledge and training can mean the difference between life and death in some situations. Being prepared for any situation that can arise is the epitome of being in the fire service and that is what this training is all about.

Rope Rescue training is the first step in the goal of becoming a Rescue Technician. A Rescue Technician is the highest level of accreditation a person can achieve within the rescue world. To become a Rescue Technician a person must reach the technician level in three specific disciplines. After this course the entire District 7 Rescue Team will be a Rope Rescue Technician.

This goal of gaining the title of Rescue Technician is a lofty goal for such a large group, however, this level of expertise is what District 7 Fire & Rescue expects department wide. District 7’s goal is to be prepared for any possible hazard and better protect the community.
