Propane Tank Fires

There are an estimated 60 million propane-fueled devices in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association. These range from propane-fueled grills to propane heating systems. Our team is training to respond to tank fires.

Rescue Rope Training

Rope rescue is a subset of technical rescue that involves the use of a rope. Preparing for rescue scenarios specific to our response area is our priority. We are training to recognize existing and potential rope rescue situations.

Hydraulic Rescue Tools

Hydraulic rescue tools were first patented in 1961 by George Hurst after he witnessed rescue crews take over an hour to extricate stock car drivers from crashed cars. We train and learn techniques to rescue victims from car crashes.
