DATES - October, November 2023 | A practical course focused on rescuing the injured using rope and climbing techniques | range: 8 hours | Output: Participant list
Tree climbing rescue in practice - TREE FELLING
Focus: tree felling with spurs climbing rescue techniques
Content and course of training:
For the beginning of the felling season, we have prepared a course specifically focused on rescue procedures
when felling trees using rope techniques. The goal is to learn how to rescue a climber in spurs
especially in one of the most difficult situations - during log work, when there is no anchor point - more precisely - when the anchor point for rescue is very low,
it is therefore necessary to work in difficult and very confined conditions.
This type of rescue is not easy, so we will focus on special techniques,
with which the injured climber can be efficiently, quickly and safely evacuated from the tree to the ground.
The course Tree climbing rescue in practice - TREE FELLING is suitable for professional climbers,
and advanced climbers who know basic rope rescue techniques.
The course is suitable for preparation for the recertification of the ETW (European Tree Worker) exam,
and ČCA (Czech Certified Arborist - Tree Climber).
You are going to solve the real situations that threaten tree climbers at work every day.
All course participants will first be introduced to rescue techniques with a visual demonstration.
Subsequently, each participant will try the practical rescue of an "injured" colleague on his own skin under the guidance of experienced lecturers.
In pairs, you will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be rescued, but also to actively rescue an injured colleague.
