Blackwood firefighters train on basic rope rescue skills

Members have spent the last few weeks during training nights going over the basics of our rope rescue systems and all the equipment that goes with it. Tuesday June 27th the Blackwood firefighters put their skills to the test with a simulation rope rescue call. Members split the crew up to send people down to make contact with the victim (rescue dummy), others were setting up the rope systems that we use.  These skills help us be better prepared should a real emergency happen.
