Search and Rescue


While emergency medical response and fire suppression are a main demand for services, each medically trained firefighter has a special skill to which they devote many hours of training. These skills include the following:

  • High and Low Angle Rope Rescue
  • Surface, Swift Water and Ice Rescue
  • Vehicle Extrication and Machinery Entrapments
  • Structural Collapse
  • Hazardous Materials (HazMat)
  • Back Country Rescues

The diverse response area in the district requires proficiency in all these rescue disciplines.
