Every Rescuer Should Know Their ABCDE’s: A Disciplined Approach for Conducting Rope System Safety Checks
Presenter: Jeremy Metz | Webinar |
A common practice in rope rescue is to conduct a “safety check” of the rigging in a rope system prior to placing a human load on it. The purpose and value of safety check is well documented in various technical rope rescue textbooks and is even is a job performance requirement in NFPA 1006, Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications.

This free PMI® Webinar will present a disciplined approach developed by West Metro Fire Rescue’s (Lakewood, CO) Technical Rescue Team as one way to conduct a system safety check.
