The Technical Rescue Team has the capabilities of performing high and low angle rope rescue.  These situations occur when a patient is located above or below ground and cannot be reached by normal means.  Each Team member has been trained to set up solid anchors, use mechanical advantages, and create lowering or raising systems using ropes, knots, and other technical hardware.  They have the ability to place a patient in a variety of different rescue litters and will ride with the patient and tend to their needs and provide medical treatment during the rescue.  Proficiency in rope rescue techniques requires countless hours of training and practical review.
