frank martinez ropes class

This is an 8-Hour dynamic hands-on class that will cover basic high rise rope rescue operations with an emphasis on the tactical considerations of anchors, lowering, and rescue systems. This is not a typical type of "rescue class". All students will be on rope from heights of 60' to 300' from a condo in downtown Atlanta. You do not have to have any previous rope training to attend this class. If you are a Rope Tech, this class will allow you to hone your skills in a real world environment that is not a training tower. 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Bunker gear, helmet, gloves

Cost: $80

INSTRUCTOR: All cadre are active Firefighters with Atlanta Fire Rescue and Instructors with the Atlanta Fire Rescue School. All of the cadre have taken part in real world rescues from highrises in Atlanta.
