This technique enables a single user to simultaneously operate two devices.   Advantages Even sharing of the load on the descenders Reduced potential extension of the system,…

Welcome to Confined Space Rescue Demonstration: Technician

Welcome to the third and final demonstration installment of our confined space rescue series… Confined Space Rescue Demonstration: Technician.  We have a stacked line for you with tons of tips, information, and demonstrations. What you’ll be watching is far from exhaustive, however, we’ve tipped the scales way beyond anything you’ll…

Welcome to Confined Space Rescue Demonstration: Operations

Welcome to Confined Space Rescue Demonstration: Operations. This demo will provide you with the theory to operate at the NFPA confined space rescue operations level. As rescue is a skill-based event this theory needs to be matched with skill-based follow-up training prior to you trying this on your own. The Setting…

Welcome to Confined Space Rescue Demonstration: Awareness

Sure, there are a ton of courses out there for confined space principles — how to do hole watch, how to monitor, etc. — but just how relevant is this material to a confined space rescuer? When should we build a tripod reeve? What kind of precautions should we take…
