The Various Types Of Rescue Staffing Available

Posted by , on Sep, 2016

No one ever hopes for an emergency or natural disaster, but when something goes awry, it’s best to be prepared. Employees should know what to do in case of an emergency, and where to go. However, when they become trapped, it’s necessary to call on professionals that can help. Rescue staffing comes in a variety of options. You’ve got teams of people that can handle everyday emergencies, as well as high-angle, technical rope and confined space rescues.

Traditional Teams

Emergency teams can be called upon to handle a variety of situations. Many times, traditional law enforcement and fire departments have some ERT training, which makes them able to deal some situations.

High Angles

Rescues that need to be performed at heights or difficult angles require specially-trained personnel.  Vessels, silos, skyscrapers and elevated platforms may all require specially trained individuals so the person can be saved. Likewise, they may be injured and unable to climb down or otherwise assist with the efforts of those trying to save them, making high-angle training a necessity.

Technical Rope

Rope rescues are also necessary for some instances. The staffing you choose should have technical rope rescue training to ensure they know how to use carabiners, pulleys, and ropes efficiently. Ropes can be used in water and confined space rescues, as well as others.

Confined Space

Confined spaces may not seem like much of a problem, but they require specialty training and equipment. If a building collapses and there is still a small empty space with someone inside, you have to know the best methods for extraction. Otherwise, you risk the building collapsing more and killing or injuring yourself and others.
