Firefighters Practice Rope Rescue Training


Portland firefighters at Station 1 are tied up with ropes training that will continue to keep them prepared for rescues and other emergency operations. Members of the High Angle Rope Rescue team have been practicing tying knots, running rope lines, preparing a patient for rescue, and rappelling up and down a five-story tower at Station 1 to save fake victims.

"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.

Just as important, the drill allowed firefighters to practice teamwork and problem solving skills all in preparation for rare, but very real high angle rescues. Click here to view additional photos of this training drill on PF&R's Facebook page.
