Ropes That Rescue provides THREE SERVICES to the Electric Utility and Power Delivery Industry:
Our in-depth, hands on training is broken into three distinct and different areas involving transmission lines:
We understand the differences between standard rope rescue, industrial rope access, technical rescue training techniques and equipment and those used in the 'tower trades'. RTR instructor, Reed Thorne, has been working in and around the towers for much of his life. His work with tower rescue training, including high voltage power transmission linemen, is unsurpassed anywhere in the world. Even the History Channel extensively documented Reed's rescue techniques in their series Suicide Missions presentation "High Voltage" filmed with Georgia Power linemen on energized 500,000 volt power lines! No other training company can bring to the table the depth of knowledge in rescue from towers of any kind like RTR. These simple, yet effective technical rescue techniques taught in several RTR programs incorporate the latest developments in lightweight, multi-function equipment that workers would be normally using to provide work positioning and fall protection at elevation. At the conclusion of our training, participants will be better prepared to deal with emergencies they may encounter during routine work assignments.
RTR line worker rope access training on high voltage power transmission lines focuses on job-specific techniques and extensive hands-on practicals to provide line workers with the means for both self-rescue and more difficult evacuation of injured coworkers.
"The choice is not a choice at all...
Reed has the years and years of experience with high voltage power lines that others teaching tower rescue lack...
Who else would you trust?"
Ropes That Rescue seminars have been featured on the covers of both TRANSMISSION & DISTRIBUTION WORLD, UTILITY SAFETY and ELECTRIC ENERGY magazines. Reed Thorne is also a speaker at many conferences in the power delivery industry including EEI, ESMO 2000, 2002 and T&D World Expo 2000.
