TECH RESCUE



Fire department personnel, both volunteer and career, involved in technical rescue may participate in many specialty areas. Confined space training is a New York State certification program that enables providers to work in confined spaces and hazardous atmospheres. There are many sites in the City of Cortland that meet confined space criteria, including industrial sites and utility areas. Hazardous materials technicians are certified by New York State and have refresher courses and advanced coursework available through the Specialist level. Hazardous materials can be found almost everywhere, from under the kitchen sink to industrial processing. Rope rescue technicians are also certified by New York State and have several levels of certification. This can involve high angle and low angle (below grade) rope techniques.
