Tower rescue training that includes rescuing individuals from cellular, transmission, and other structures at height.

SECOND FALL OFFERING!

Tower rescue incidents include rescuing individuals from cellular, transmission, and other structures at height. The unique nature of these incidents creates “bottom-up” scenarios where rescuers must physically overcome heights to access and rescue the patient. This class expands on previously learned rope rescue operations skills, and introduces students to tower climbing, fall protection, radiofrequency hazards, suspension trauma, tower-based and ground-based rescue tactics, and more. This course is designed for a small group to maximize hands-on training time and to develop strong communications and team work skills among the students.

Pre-Requisites: Age 18 and up, previous Rope Rescue Operations level training

PA DOH EMS Con-Ed: 9.0 hours (3.0 clinical)
