Techniques

The techniques all revolve around using ropes, pulleys and carabineers. These essential basic items allow a professional rescue tech to surmount almost any obstacle whether it is a 1000 ft cliff, a 1000 ft cave, a blast furnace, distillation unit or cat cracker. Rescue techs are able to see the escape routes in each obstacle and then plan using their tools on how best to package and extract the injured person, whether they are conscious or not.

Rope Rescue Situations

Confined Space Rescue you can have a horizontal rescue, vertical rescue or angled rescue either up or down.
High Angle Rescue can also have many variances in technique, depending upon height, surrounding structures, angle of decent, and whether the high angle rescue has a confined rescue that needs to take place before evacuating the patient from the height.
the differences can be swift water vs still water such as a lake, height from the water, a few feet vs dozens of feet.

We Never Stop Training

It’s An Art

The list of additional items used in rescue is endless, but the essentials never change. When Code Red Safety puts rescue teams in the field they are specifically trained in the flexible art of rope rescue. Our level one techs receive at least 40 hours of rope rescue training, they must then work in the field as an observer before they can actually work on a rescue team.
Our rescue leads, the ones that envision the rescue and write the rescue pre-plan have at least 80 hours of rope rescue training and a year of experience. Most of Code Red Safety’s leads have 5+ years experience in oil, chemical, steel, power plants and high rise commercial buildings.
