Rescue Training in Alaska

Rescue Training In AlaskaIn May, D2000 Rescue Instructors Greg Arbizo and Lary Morton completed three days of confined space entry and rescue training for the City and Borough of Juneau, Alaska. The location for the training was at the city's Mendenhall Wastewater Treatment Plant.

"We started out with the basics," Lary said, "with entrant/attendant training. The we moved into entry supervisor. By the end of the three days we were focusing on some fairly advanced techniques for getting patients out of some tight spots.

"The students were great," Greg Arbizo added. "They really got involved and learned a great deal."

Rescue scenarios were practiced in pump vaults and clarifiers, as well as within some rescue props to simulate working in sewer pipelines.

D2000 instructors have taught confined space entry in this facility in years past, as well as other topics including excavation safety.
