40 Portland Firefighters Received Hands-On Training in Structural Collapse Rescue
Feb 11, 2010 at 4:36 PM 7 Comments
Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) conducted training for 40 members of its Technical Rescue Team on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week at PF&R's training facility located at 4800 NE 122nd Avenue in Portland, Oregon.
The training focus on scenarios similar to those faced by Federal Urban Search and Rescue Teams in Haiti following the devastating earthquake there. Specifically, teams were trained to rescue victims in a structural collapse by breaching concrete walls, floors, doors, and metal beams. Teams practiced installing shoring and other materials to create a safe space for firefighters to enter and rescue trapped victims.
Firefighters worked with a variety of tools including search cameras, listening devices to hone in on signals trapped victims may be sending, rotary saws, hydraulic chainsaws, cutting torches, and other tools.
Structural collapse training is the final and most complex portion of training for the Technical Rescue Team. Because many of the team’s members are new, the training is an integral part of skill building and developing expertise in this very specialized type of rescue operation.

Get your ex lover back no matter why he left you.
My boyfriend that left me a few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn't stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Kadiri and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and After 11hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him. We moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since Dr Kadiri helped me, my boyfriend is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before, You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fixed .Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: +2349012496294 or Email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Get your ex Love back with the help of a real spell caster who saved my marriage.
I'm Josie Wilson from USA. I was at the verge of losing my marriage when Dr.Excellent stepped in and rescued me. My husband had filed for divorce after an unending dispute and emotional abuses we both suffered due to misunderstandings. He left the house and refused to come back. I sought for Dr.Excellent knowing I don’t wish to suffer another penury due to divorce cases and losing my man. I complied with his work procedures which was very easy and he worked for me. The love and connection between me and my partner was restored and he came back and got the divorce case canceled. It’s all for a fact that Dr.Excellent is honest and transparent in helping people and you too reading this can get the solution you seek in restoring joy and happiness in your marriage or relationship. contact Dr.Excellent for help now..Here his contact.
