On May 5th-7th 2023 Rescue Squad 15 with 4 volunteers travelled to Union Bridge in Carroll County for a combination rescue training. This training involved heavy lifting and vehicle extraction and stabilization. Crews utilized a variety of techniques and equipment to include Paratech struts, hydrafusion struts and Low pressure air bags to name a few. Both days consisted of rope rescues in the afternoon. Challenging terrain and lack of natural anchors made crews in stall several types of wedge anchors directly into rock. Crews completed 5 rescues over the 3 day class and spent about 24 hours to complete them.

Thank to MATR and Union Bridge VFD for hosting this class. Also photos being provided by Dirt Road Photo place and MATR
