Rope Rescue Drills

Hillsboro firefighters attend seasonal trainings for special rescue situations. Each spring, they go through a refresher course for the veterans in the skills of high angle and low angle rope rescue. While all firefighters have a basic knowledge of these skills, our Technical Rescue Technicians have advanced training and normally respond to critical incidents requiring their special skills. The first arriving engine company can often begin the process of setting up a rope system to speed up rescue when the Technical Rescue Technicians arrive.
