Written by Jesse Baroka on May 23, 2023
ARBOR VITAE – The Arbor Vitae Fire Department spent this past Saturday on Musky Mountain, working on low angle rescues. The Tech rescue team trains for all variety of emergency situations, including low angle training, which takes 40 hours to complete the course. Rescues like a car driving down a steep slope are what low angle training helps address. Rope rescues can involve as man as six firefighters if there is a patient that needs transport, all working as a team at different aspects of using ropes to get those rescue to safety. Training on site provides real life situational opportunities for fire/rescue personnel to sharpen their skills.
