• Arboricultural High Angle Rescue and Emergency Response

    Have you ever wondered how you would rescue a tree worker if they become injured at height? Are you a fire rescue technician or arborist looking to improve your awareness around technical tree climbing systems and techniques? Did you know that ANSI Z133 requires all workers on a worksite to be trained in aerial rescue techniques and emergency response procedures?
    One-Day Course Description
    The Arboricultural High Angle Rescue and Emergency Response training course is designed to explain and demonstrate work positioning and rescue techniques used among arborists and firefighters while responding to emergency situations. This one-day course provides instruction and field demonstration on the following:
    • Rescue, readiness and reality
    • Risk assessment, scene management and first aid
    • Self-rescue working at height in canopy
    • Scenario identification and injury extent/severity evaluation
    • Climber extrication, rescuer ascent and work positioning
    • Common tree rescue scenarios
    Hands-On Course
    A separate, one-day hands-on course will be offered on October 17th to provide an opportunity to practice techniques learned during the instruction and field demonstration; participation in the one-day training on October 16th is a requirement of attendance. All levels of climbers and aerial rescuers, experienced and non-experienced, looking to increase their technical knowledge and skills as it relates to access, positioning, climbing and rescue systems are encouraged to attend.
    This course is appropriate for both arborists and fire fighters, and is limited to 20 participants.
