This course is designed to educate tree climbers in the most likely scenarios where they may have to respond to an emergency. Emphasis is on emergency preparedness, readiness and accident prevention. The importance of self-rescue strategies and understanding the ‘working alone’ definition reinforces the importance of emergency readiness. Participants will be educated in the facts about tree work accidents and fatalities. Information based on arborist statistics and industry reviews provides the basis for the specific rescue techniques demonstrated. Attendees will also be educated in key terms and definitions relating to rope parts, knots, hitches and specialized equipment. Physics concepts such as reaction force and potential energy associated with various rope rescue systems and configurations will also be addressed. This course involves hands-on rescue demonstrations.
