Fire Department Performs Rope Rescue

On August 14 at 8:48 am, the Kitimat Fire Department (KFD) responded to a rescue call at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School.

A man working on the roof of the school had sustained an upper body injury that prevented him from descending the ladders to the ground, thus requiring the assistance of KFD.

KFD shift members dispatched to the incident utilized Ladder 11 along with various ropes and rigging systems to safely lower the patient from the roof into an awaiting ambulance for medical treatment.
