Tech Rescue Team
BFRD Firefighters maintain a Light Technical Rescue Team (LTRT) capability. The team can perform rescues of victims from what is considered a difficult or “technical” situation. As an example, workers who become trapped in trenches or above ground at heights requiring the use of ropes and ladders to bring them to the ground. A technical rescue could also include the removal of a victim in a construction or building collapse, confined space area or need rescuing from swift moving water. For any rescue situation which is more complex, the district is a partner with The North Area Technical Team. The members of this team will respond to help resolve the situation.
