Arborist Rescue for First Responders
Arborist (Tree) Rescue is a collaborative project between the Illinois Arborist Association (IAA) and Elevated Safety LLC. This program is designed to provide critical skills required to successfully execute a rescue of a victim in a tree.
Participants will become prepared for emergency response to high-angle arborist rescue incidents.
Training topics include:
- Arborist equipment
- Tree anchoring
- Tree climbing
- Work positioning
- Arborist rescue techniques
These subjects will be addressed in a classroom environment and during vertical training evolutions in live trees.
