Rope Rescue

Team Leader: Lt. Larry Walters (Medina FD)


The purpose of the Rope Rescue/Confined Space team is to rescue persons that require rope access or entry into an OSHA defined “Confined Space”. This can include anything from a person with a medical emergency at the top of a communications tower or a person that fell down an embankment to a rescue inside of a grain bin, or industrial tank. The team has had many rescues at Whipps Ledges in Hinckley.
