TRAINING

Following the recent rope rescue of a tractor trailer driver suspended over a bridge in Louisville, crews decided to practice rigging highline systems, pickoff techniques, and patient packaging off of the aerial device. Members experimented with multiple types of systems to see which were the most effective and resource-friendly.
