North Pocono Firefighters Complete Tensioned Highline Rope Rescue Training

Firefighters from across the North Pocono Area including Elmhurst-Roaring Brook, Gouldsboro, Jefferson and Moscow were at it once again this past Saturday & Sunday in the rain and cold advancing their rope rescue training while learning about and practicing with the usage of tensioned highline systems as part of the Rope / High Angle Rescue 4 Program. These types of rescues demand advanced rigging skills and are the most difficult and most dangerous types of vertical rescue. We are grateful to have personnel and instructors trained to this advanced level of rope rescue, right here in our area. Great work by everyone who participated!
