Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service

Rope Rescue

Western Area Command has two Level 2 Rope Rescue teams specially trained in rescues from confined spaces such as wells, silos, tanks, pits etc. Access can often be difficult to such sites, plus there are many other hazards to consider, such as a lack of oxygen.
The Rope Rescue teams, based at Dungannon Fire Station & Crescent Link Fire Station, use specialist skills & equipment to either safely rescue casualties, or to stabilise the situation until other specialist teams and equipment arrive.
