Women Only - Technical Rescue Training Weekend
September 24-25, 2022 in West Chester, PA
We are proud to host our first ever Women Only Technical Rescue Training Weekend. This will be a unique training opportunity for women in the technical rescue industry, where they will be given the opportunity to learn and practice new skills with other women students.
The students will participate in a 16-hour Rescue Operations at Height class. Previous rope rescue training is recommended, but not required. Students will be introduced to rope, knots, anchors, and other specialized equipment on Saturday. On Sunday, the students will participate in a full day of practical skills training comprised of climbing vertical structures using fall protection equipment, ascending and descending rope, and rescuing individuals trapped at height.
Class will be held both days at the West Chester Fire Department Training Center (351 Snyder Ave, West Chester, PA 19381).
Class will run from 8:00am - 4:00pm both days.
Students must bring their own class III harness, rescue helmet, rope gloves, and safety glasses to class. If you are unable to to bring any of this equipment, please email us.
