This 40-hour program is designed to provide operations-level and technician-level skills to all participants. The course meets all technician-level requirements outlined in the Tower Rescue Chapter of NFPA 1670 & 1006 (2017 Edition).
Participants will become prepared for emergency response to high-angle rescue incidents involving communications towers, radio towers, and other man-made structures. Training topics include tower hazards, RF safety, tower climbing equipment and techniques, and tower rescue methods. These subjects will be addressed in a classroom environment and during multiple vertical training evolutions on a variety of structures. Written and practical skills testing will be conducted at the conclusion of this course, but state certification is not available.
