Reliable Hosts Trench Rescue Training for County Fire Departments

Reliable Contracting recently hosted the Anne Arundel County Fire Department Collapse and Rescue Team’s four-day training session at Reliable’s Millersville quarry. The event – sponsored by the Utility Contractor’s Association, of which Reliable is a member – brought together several rescue units from all over the state of Maryland to learn safe procedures and practices with the industry’s newest tools for extracting victims of a trench wall collapse.

Reliable prepared the site by excavating both straight and “L” trenches, which the fire departments used to simulate perilous situations.

This was just part of the Utility Contractor’s Association’s ongoing work with local fire departments. In addition to the aforementioned training session, the Association is also working on the creation of an emergency contact list consisting of local utility contractors and rescue squads to help speed up response time in critical situations.

When it comes to emergency rescue, every second matters!
