About the Course

Filmed on location at Vertical Rescue Solutions (VRS) headquarters and the various towers in the mountainous areas of Colorado’s Front Range, we caught up with Tom Wood to learn all about industrial rescue after a fall. Although this course was presented by Vertical Rescue Solutions for the PMI TowerPack™ and its use, the concept for work at height professionals cannot be over-emphasized.

What You'll Learn

Industrial Rescue After a Fall: TowerPack™ Rescue Solution by PMI covers topics such as:

  • Components of the TowerPack™

  • Self Escape by Controlled Descent

  • Solo Companion Rescue by Lower

  • Two-Person Rescue by Lower

    This course was very informative. We will be looking into the TowerPack system to add to our trucks now.
