High Angle Rescue Training

Posted on: 6/24/2003

Seminole and Volusia County Fire Departments
Combine Forces for Specialized Training

WHAT: High Angle Rescue / Special Operations Training

WHEN: Thursday, June 26, 2003, 10:00 am

WHERE: Interstate 4 Bridge Ė over St. Johnís River
(All training will take place under the bridge and will not be visible by air or the new I-4 bridge)
Access: Take 17-92 north from Sanford into Volusia County, take immediate right on Old Debary Road. Caution! This is a limited access roadway with low branches.

WHY: Rarely do firefighters and paramedics have an opportunity like the Florida Department of Transportation has given Seminole and Volusia County Fire Departments. Both fire departments will combine forces to conduct high angle rescue training under the old Interstate-4 Bridge. The training scenario will be similar to a high elevation rescue conducted on a stack at the Debary Power Plant in March, 2003.
