This class is for all firefighters, EMTs and industrial rescue personnel who have had previous basic or intermediate rope rescue training.
As the landscape changes with the proliferation of wind turbines,
new hazards are presented for the construction workers building them
and for the first responders who are called upon when accidents
happen. New techniques and equipment are necessary to deal with these
structures and will also improve rescue skills from height or depth
situations. We will cover required rope rescue techniques including
lower/haul systems, high lines, litter tilt lines, tracking lines and
new belay techniques which are (JPRs) job performance
requirements outlined in NFPA 1006 standard.
Prerequisites: Student are required to have Basic or Level I Rope Rescue and students should be able to climb a 100 meter ladder (328')
