On Monday, our first responders practiced a different way to save your life: rope rescue.
Toledo’s firefighters experienced some specialized training for the moment they’ll need to save someone who’s trapped.
That someone could become trapped on the side of a bridge, a window washer stuck on the side of a high rise or a person trapped at the bottom of an embankment.
Whatever the situation, advanced rope rescue poses risks. That’s why training like this is crucial to committing this type of specialized rescue to muscle memory.
When lives are at stake, specialized rescue has to be a formula our first responders can follow quickly.
Rope rescue is one of five specialized rescues our first responders train for throughout the year.
