Our Mission

To empower the worlds emergency responders by delivering the latest evidence based information in the field of technical and medical rescue

Ian Dunbar training and consultancy has been established as a mechanism to share over 2 decades of experience in the field of technical and medical rescue. This experience has been gained as an operational firefighter, incident commander, national and world level assessor (for United Kingdom Rescue Organisation and World Rescue Organisations respectively), a global trainer and consultant for one of the world leaders in hydraulic rescue equipment and as a member of one of the worlds leading prehospital medical faculties. Additionally I have also been involved in motorsports rescue for the last 3 years including being part of the project to introduce the additional frontal head protection (HALO) into Formula One.

I have been immensely lucky to have worked in more than 100 countries worldwide and spent many years not only as a practitioner, but as a researcher and educator. I have been instrumental in the development of some of the most innovative rescue products of the last ten years and have established a global educational concept entitled ‘Rescue Experience’ with the express aim of empowering emergency responders. I have cut more than 400 brand new vehicles in recent years and developed a critical understanding of the impact of new vehicle construction and its impact on operational responders.

I have written and published the best selling book ‘Vehicle Extrication Techniques’ as well as authoring many articles for worldwide media all whilst maintaining a busy blogging schedule for the last five years. I am currently an in demand author, regularly contributing to worldwide media publications on all aspects of technical rescue. 

I am currently busy rewriting/updating Vehicle Extrication Techniques for publication in 2020 with the possibility of also publishing additional books covering related topics.

I have worked with some of the world’s most eminent practitioners, researchers and industry experts and as such I have a global network that is second to none.
