Tower Rescue for the Professional Rescuer
Even in the very best of scenarios, tower rescue for the professional can be a daunting task. The dangers of extreme height, high voltage, microwave radiation, radio frequency exposure and gusting winds make tower rescue one of the toughest calls the professional rescuer deals with. And with the number of tower erections skyrocketing (there are currently about 200,000 cell sites in the US and the number is expected to nearly double in the next five years, according to The Wireless Estimator), the likelihood of a tower rescue in your department’s response area increases almost daily.
At VRS™ you can rely on a tower rescue course to address more than just the rigging involved with the rescue. The objective dangers facing the professional rescuer on either a telecommunications or power transmission tower are just as important to rescuer safety as the systems used for the rescue.
This course will also familiarize the student with some of the tools and techniques unique to tower work and rescue.
