Elevated Safety is excited to sponsor, and host the Technical Rescue Training (TRT) Competition during the 2023 Palm Beach State Invitational.

The PBSC Invitational is a multi-day, multi-discipline competitive event hosted in Lake Worth, FL. The event is an opportunity for members of public safety agencies to showcase their abilities, compete against peers, and learn in a cooperative environment.

Five competitions will take place including: Technical Rescue Training (TRT) Competition (presented by Elevated Safety), Panther EMS Challenge, NAVRA National Rescue Challenge, Rapid Intervention Crew/Team (RIC/RIT) Competition and a Motorcycle Riding Challenge.
