LOW ANGLE ROPE RESCUE
The unique geography of Los Angeles County presents an array of challenges to our firefighters, particularly the mountains and forest areas. Low-angle rope rescues are often required to assist injured hikers, car accident victims, or other residents needing our help. However, these types of rescues are a perishable skill that require frequent refresher training to keep our personnel ready to assist at a moment’s notice. In this video, LACoFD demonstrates successful low-angle rope rescue techniques to help you sharpen your skill sets in this critical function.
