    Aerial Rescue Training

    Training in Emergency Response and Aerial Rescue This workshop is designed to educate tree climbers in the most likely scenarios where they may have to respond to an emergency. Emphasis is on emergency preparedness, readiness and accident prevention. The importance of selfrescue strategies and understanding the ‘working alone’ definition reinforces the importance of emergency readiness. Participants are educated in the truths about tree work accidents and fatalities, information based on arborist statistics and industry reviews provides the basis for the specific rescue techniques trained and practiced. Participants are educated in key terms and definitions relating to rope parts, knots, hitches and specialized equipment. Physics concepts such as reaction force and potential energy associated with various rope rescue systems and configurations complete this comprehensive workshop. This workshop involves hands on rescue opportunities and practice.
