Excavation Safety App

Completed Rescue Training Projects
Our rescue division has completed (or is in the process of completing) several high-visibility projects. Here are a few examples:
- Similar to last year, we will be providing Rope Access Consulting and Training for the Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C.
- We were awarded a contract to provide a second year of training for all three of the US Coast Guard’s National Strike Force Teams in Confined Space Safety and Rescue.
- One of our largest technical rescue training projects in our company’s history was finished last spring. About 40 firefighters with the Warwick (Rhode Island) Fire Department completed technician-level rope rescue training for towers, confined space, and related NFPA technical rescue disciplines.
- We worked on several rescue projects for Intel in Arizona. We trained their emergency responders in confined space and provided rescue technician standby services during several of their tank entries.
