Regional Technical Rescue Drill - Day 3

Day 3 of the technical rescue drill, the brothers from  C Shift joined up with their counterparts from Roanoke City and Roanoke County B shift personnel for the third and final day of the Division 6 Technical Rescue Team Quarterly Drill.  The drill for this quarter is focused on trench rescue, with a twist.  The final day scenario was different than the first two.  A worker was pinned beneath two pipes in an unsecured trench.  This scenario involved a lifting problem in addition to shoring the trench.

A good job by everybody, a break for lunch, some shuffling of personnel, then back to some more trench training. 

The rest of the drill focused on getting hands on time setting trench panels and shores, discussing different shoring situations and safety.

Overall a very good three days of training and lesson learned. 

Stay safe, train hard!
