TOWERTEK™ RESCUE SOLUT ION


SELF EVACUATION OR RESCUE OF ANOTHER BY CONTROLLED DESCENT TowerTek™ is designed to meet the requirements of mast and tower climbers who need to evacuate themselves or recover an injured worker. Allowing for immediate descent of a rope, the kit includes the PowerLock™ descender. The PowerLock™ descender has a double action safety mechanism which will brake if the user either lets go or squeezes too hard in panic. Prior to descent, the PowerLock™ easily adjusts the amount of rope slack and provides excellent braking control, even with a load of two persons. This system does not include a rescuer harness. This Solution is tested as a unit to comply with ANSI Z359.4.

RELATED COURSES BY VERTICAL RESCUE SOLUTIONS TOWER RESCUE FOR THE


PROFESSIONAL RESCUER Even in the very best of scenarios, tower rescue for the professional can be a daunting task. The dangers of extreme height, high voltage, microwave radiation, radio frequency exposure, and gusting winds make tower rescue one of the toughest calls the professional rescuer deals with. And with the number of tower erections skyrocketing (there are currently about 200,000 cell sites in the US and the number is expected to nearly double in the next five years, according to Wireless Estimator), the likelihood of a tower rescue in your department’s response area increases almost daily.


OBJECTIVE: Prepare professional rescuers in the techniques and safety procedures they should be aware of in their vicinity, so they are ready for that next call. Discussions of being proactive in your community with uprising towers, as well as the standards and laws pertaining to such will also be a focal point of the classroom trainings.


SAFETY: This course uses the curriculum established by the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE®


) for


Competent Person Climbing and goes one step further by teaching small team tower rescue techniques to the professional rescuer, per NFPA 1670.


WHAT YOU LEARN: At VRS™, we know there is more to tower rescue than just good rigging. Safe climbing techniques, tower-type identification, lockout/tagout procedures and Radio Frequency (RF) exposure all go hand in hand with these challenging rescues. This course will also familiarize the student with some of the tools and techniques unique to tower work and rescue.
