Low Angle Rescue Techniques Class 

       

Senior Firefighter, EMT Bret Snow recently conducted a class on low angle rescue techniques. 

Low angle rescue is considered to be terrain that has a slope angle

from 15 to 35 degrees. The condition of the terrain will determine the need for and

the amount of rope support required.  Examples of low angle locations

include over-the-bank situations where a car has left a roadway and descended an adjacent slope.
