Tower Rescue Operations
Learn operations level tower rescue techniques based on NFPA 1006.
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.
Please note: The online component should be completed in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Students must have previously completed Rope Rescue Operations level training through Elder Technical Rescue Services, LLC or another approved training provider.
Practical Skills Training:
Practical skills sessions are invoiced separately. Students must bring their own class III rescue harness, rescue helmet, rope gloves, and safety glasses to their practical skills session.
Certificates of Continuing Education and PA DOH EMS Con-Ed credits will be issued to all students successfully completing the program.
We can also set this class up for every member of your organization. Contact us to learn more about group pricing and the enrollment process.
