In September, the Shell Deer Park Rescue Team conducted refresher training in Trench Rescue. Trench rescues are complex responses, requiring additional skills and knowledge to allow rescuers to safely assist trapped patients. In addition to its Rescue Truck of rope and confined space equipment, the team maintains a trailer of equipment outfitted specifically to respond to trench and excavation scenarios.
For four days the team trained in several types of response scenarios, including a full scale drill response where the team responded to a trench collapse and extricated the patient from the trench utilizing a rope rigging system and ladder high-point.
The Shell Deer Park Rescue Team is comprised of 34 volunteers and full-time responders. Trained in confined space, rope, vehicle and machinery, and trench and excavation rescues, the team is responsible for responding to all incident where a person is potentially trapped or injured.
