Code Red Safety specializes in High Angle Rescue. High angle is the variety of technical rope rescue techniques used to rescue injured or otherwise incapacitated persons on terrain at slopes of 60º or greater. It involves the need to hoist victims from one level to another using ropes, pulleys, harnesses, belay devices and various hauling implements. Rescuers build on-site rigging systems designed either to raise or lower accident victims to the optimum elevation for safe extraction that they have learned through our high angle rescue training programs and classes. Our methods employ a technical form of Rope Rescue that has been designed to extradite the victim with the best possible ratio of speed and safety. Our #1 priority is to safely retrieve injured victims, which means every aspect of our rescue procedures are tailored to minimize further injury during transportation.

Performing Rescues

Before our technical rescue teams move accident victims, they first identify any conditions that may pose further threats over the course of the extraction, to ensure he or she will be extracted without sustaining further injury. Upon initial contact, a rescuer will identify:

  • If the patient is conscious or responsive
  • Is there any spinal cord injury, to determine if extraction can be done quickly.
  • Is the rescuer about to extract the patient with or without rescue equipment support
  • Is the patient stable for extraction

When it comes to high angle rescue service, it’s critical to treat every individual with care. Precision is key, which is why we are trained to evaluate the condition of the injured victim, as well as the site location, to protect the safety of everyone involved.
