In preparation for our Arborist Rescue class in August we had the opportunity to train with the two arborists with whom we’re collaborating. Shawn Emmons from Emmons Tree Service and Matt Reynolds of SymmeTree Care. Both of these guys are experts in their craft. The August class is going to be top notch with some really unique opportunities.

This two day class will happen on August 22nd and 23rd. The program is designed to help first responders identify the arborist climbing system in place, evaluate the nature and extent of the climber emergency and make a go/no-go decision to begin rescue. 8 spots will be reserved for current Rope Technicians, with 12 open spots available. Technicians will be performing in tree rescues. Numerous team based rescues will be performed.
