New Confined Space Rescue Program

The Confined Space Rescue program is a realistic look at confined space technique, protocol, patient packaging, and safety procedures.

Using the Guardian Safety and Survival Training Simulator®, Guardian Specialists demonstrate and explain how to perform a confined space rescue using the simulator’s  sewer prop. In the 18-minute program they explain and demonstrate the proper techniques to set up operations, lower rescuers and equipment into the confined space, package the patient, and remove the patient.  During this program the instructors explain the safety points of the operation as well as the technical points of the tasks involved.

The presenter is Kristopher Gaasch, an Acting Lieutenant with one of the busiest companies in one of the nation’s busiest departments.
