This past week each of the shifts went through a ropes class. The firefighters rappelled and used rope systems to raise and lower a firefighter in a basket.
This training was done by utilizing the ceiling and two fire trucks as anchor points. Various mechanical devices were also used.
It was said that one of the firefighters on one of the prior days was apprehensive at first, but after a couple rappels he didn’t want to stop.
Great training El Dorado Fire!
