Welcome to the Rope Rescue Team Homepage
Rope is a highly underated tool in search and rescue. Most people don't pull it out until they really need it and many don't even train for it's eventual use.
When most people think of rope in a rescue they picture people coming down the side of a steep mountain or building. In the real world of rescue it is rarely like that. Rope rescue is a highly specialized skill that takes extensive training and an almost exclusive dedication to if one desires to even approach expertise.
Rope is used as a guide for the searchers as they move over unstable of angled terrain. It can be used to move equipment and more importantly people. Rope use is a skill that you never truly stop learning.
