This one-day, 8-hour workshop is designed for people who are looking for an introduction to ascending and descending rescue ropes. When the number of rescuers is limited, or the problem requires vertical movement, the ability to operate on a static line may offer the best solution for reaching the patient. Exploring these valuable introductory techniques will allow rescuers to be a greater asset to their team. This fast-paced workshop is 100% hands-on, and all equipment is provided.

    Horizontal Movement

    Due to the “recent” changes to NFPA 1006 2021 5.3.6, Rope Rescue Technicians are required to be able to “move a suspended rescue load along a horizontal path.” If it has been a while since your Technician class, or you would like to build your knowledge and skills in this area, this class is for you! This 16-hour two-day class is for you, with a short classroom session to explain the rigging principles involved. The rest of the class time consists of practical, hands-on evolutions. Some of the evolutions to be covered include cross hauls, high-angle offsets, and skateblocks. Winches and all three types of mechanical advantage systems (simple, compound, and complex) will be utilized to complete evolutions. Both types of “reeved” systems will be covered (both English and Norwegian). Overviews and usage of SKED and Arizona Vortex Tripods will be included in the skills performed.
