Two heroes, two different abilities, form an “Ability Team” to achieve full function. Ability teams compete in Red Cross Rescue, NAUI scuba, sailing and other aquatic and marine activities.
The purpose of the USA Rescue Games is to demonstrate the full function of an ability team. Teams can choose any activity to participate. The premiere event of the 2021 USA Rescue Games is to have ability teams complete the RED CROSS CPR/FA certification for health care providers. This would achieve a world wide first as two names would be on a single certification card. This is a prerequisite for the premiere event for the 2022 Rescue Games, state recognition as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Having two names on one state certification as a CNA would be another worldwide first and would allow people with disabilities to be employed to take care of other people with disabilities.
