A bit of Monday

Monday the Brothers on A shift had a steady first part of the shift, and then in the evening 2 House was host for the members of the Div 6 Technical Rescue Team that were going over some skill drills in preparation for Rescue Challenge 2011.                                                               

The first Rescue Challenge was held in Richmond, VA area in 1994, the concept was to bring together technical rescue teams from around the state of VA.  The idea was to challenge the abilities of the teams and validate the training that the teams had received.  The participating teams also have the opportunity to network, and share information while improving on advanced rescue techniques.  The teams participate in two real life scenarios a day for the four day event.  The scenarios include vehicle rescue, high angle rope rescue, confined space rescue, trench rescue, heavy and light structural collapse, or a combination of any of the disciplines to  complete the scenario.
