On Sunday, five additional members completed rope rescue technician training. This class took two days consisting of a four hour classroom session and an eight hour hands on session.
Our members complete rope rescue because the WTES is one of five fire departments which together make up the Burlington County Technical Rescue Team. This team trains in hi/low angle rope rescue, confined space, structural or building collapse rescue, trench rescue, and swift water rescue.
We would like to say congratulations to FF Westdyk, FF Luft, FF Nusspickel, FF Collins, and FF Hunt for passing this course!
