Tower Rescue Operations (Blended Learning)
This class teaches the fundamentals of tower rescue at the operations level.
Tower rescue incidents include rescuing individuals from cellular, transmission, and other structures at height. The unique nature of these incidents creates “bottom-up” scenarios where rescuers must physically overcome heights to access and rescue the patient. This class expands on previously learned rope rescue skills, and introduces students to tower climbing, fall protection, radiofrequency hazards, suspension trauma, tower-based and ground-based rescue tactics, and more.
The class is completed in two separate steps. First, the student completes the cognitive portion of the program online from the comfort of their own home or workplace. Upon successful completion of the online component, the student will then participate in one day of practical skills training.
This program is based on NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications (2021 edition) for the Tower Rescue Operations level.
