NFPA 1670 Outlines requirements for Technical Rescue IncidentsIdentifies the operating levels of rescue. Awareness Operations Technician 3
Awareness Level Minimum requirement Ability to: Do size upIdentify resources Implement emergency response and ICS Use PPE Recognize Hazards of Rope Rescue 4
Operations Level Awareness Level Implement:Rope based mechanical advantage systems Edge Protection Single and Multiple point Anchoring Systems 5
Operations Level cont... Use Belay SystemsConstruct lowering and raising systems Tie Knots Assure Safety Package patient Maintain ropes and equipment Ascend and Descend a fixed rope 6
Technician Level Operations Level Know Procedures for:Load distributing anchor systems High-line rope system Use in High-angle environment Pass Knots Through System Use litter Attendants in High -angle rescue 7
Rope Two types of rope used in the fire service Utility ropeLife Safety Rope 8
Utility Rope No fire standard appliesHoisting and securing objects only NOT TO BE USED FOR RESCUE OF VICTIMS 9
Life Safety Rope NFPA 1983 Two classes One person 300 LBS 4500LBF1 1/8” /2” 10
Life Safety Rope Two Person 600 LBS 9000 LBF 1 1/2” - 2 1/4” 11
Life Safety Rope Only type to be used for RESCUEShould Not be used for UTILITY ROPE 12
Rope Construction Laid-Twisted or laid bundle of strands around each other Can stretch Can spiral it untwisted under load. 13
Laid Rope 14
Rope Construction Solid Braid- No Core Unacceptable as Rescue RopeUsed only for Utility rope 15
Rope Construction Kernmantle- High strength inner core (kern)Outer sheath (mantle) Kern is the load bearing element 16
Kernmantle Dynamic Kernmantle Load absorbing abilityTwisted or Laid inner core allows some stretch 17
Kernmantle Static Kernmantle Little stretch High abrasion resistanceExcellent Rescue Rope 18
Kernmantle Almost all rescue rope made of DuPont NylonBlock and Creel construction means- No Knots in fibers, and Never been used fibers 19
Rope Care and InspectionInspect before and after use Inspect for- Visual damage Loose Mantle Kinks Store away from sunlight, heat and chemicals Wash and air dry 21
Rope Do’s and Don’ts Use the rope for it’s intended purposeAlways use edge protection Proper rappelling techniques No Fast rappels Bounding Swinging 22
Rope Do’s and Don’ts Never step on a rope and, Again,Never use a rope for anything other then it’s intended purpose 23
Webbing Used to construct anchor points 1-2” sizes1” most common has a breaking strength of 4000 LBS If use for body contact must have 6000 LBS breaking strength 24
Flat webbing Single layer of fabric Hard to tie knots inMainly used for straps and harnesses 25
Tubular Webbing Easy to tie knots Edge stitched Spiral weaveAll webbing should be inspected as rope Wash in cold water and air dry 26
Harnesses Class I Around waist and thighs One person escape only 27
Class I 28
Harnesses Class II Fastened as Class ILoad differences can be determined by label Used for rappelling and victim pick-off 29
Class II 30
Harnesses Class III Fastened around waist, thighs and shouldersShoulder harness either integrated or assembled Best in Confined Space but also for High-angle rescue 31
Class III 32
Harnesses Improvised Rescue Knot Swiss seatSwiss seat with shoulder harness 33
Belts Not for rescue Only locking in ladders, high work, etc..
Hardware Carabiners “D” shaped best for rescue Always use locking gateLoad vertically at spine ** IF A CARABINER IS DROPPED FROM WAIST HIEGHT OR HIGHER, TAKE IT OUT OF SERVICE 34
Carabiners Steel Carabiners Aluminum Carabiners 35
Hardware Rescue ring Used with multidirectional loads Anchor PlatesBraking devices also used as anchor points 36

Belay-Climb Test Review. Feet must stay below Red Line (4 ft.) Have a spotter when necessary. Never go upside down. “SOS “ when falling off wall.
