Portland Firefighters Practice Highline Rescue Drill at Downtown Fountain

17 Comments

For the past couple weeks, on-duty Portland Fire & Rescue Station 1 firefighters have been participating in a rope rescue training exercise in downtown Portland at the Keller Fountain.

 

These firefighters are members of an elite Technical Rescue Team at Portland Fire & Rescue, trained in the use of ropes and other rigging gear to use in vertical and horizontal rescue scenarios.

The purpose of this exercise was for firefighters to deploy and operate a horizontal “High Line System.” High line systems horizontally span the distance between two elevated points, or from an elevated point to the ground.  The system ensures firefighters with a safe and effective patient retrieval and transport between the various elevations.

 

"This type of training is very crucial to our knowledge and our skills," said Captain Dan at Portland Fire & Rescue’s Station 1. "Firefighters are able to practice using complex equipment and skills in various situations.” Captain Dan also notes that safety is always the most important part of any kind of training, especially with ropes.

After she left I found myself dreaming about new healing herbs. One morning somewhere between sleep and wake I heard the Hebrew word dud aim. As far as I was concerned I was dreaming. Suddenly it dawned on me How can a person have the same dreamer and over? This must be a vision. Next was the appearance of a plant.

Tie your hair in a high ponytail. Then separate your ponytail into sections each about one inch wide. Hold a section of your hair in an upwards direction and roll the hair toward your head and secure it with a bobby pin. Repeat rolling on all the sections.

Not only heart or lung problems but problems in esophagus chest muscles injuries to ribs tendons or nerves a pinched nerve etc. can also cause pain and discomfort. Sedentary lifestyle can lead to a blood clot in your leg which can move upwards and can cause severe chest pain.
