This week, during our nightly duty crews, members conducted training on our Tripod system. It is a versatile tool that can be utilized in many different ways depending on the situation, such as during a confined space or rope rescue. Members refreshed their knowledge of where the equipment is located on the apparatus and how to set it up efficiently.
