The FSAR Rope Team got together yesterday to practice. We set up an A-Frame for a high redirect to get our attendant down a steep slope. We have 3 members heading for out for training this month. 1 for Tech 1 and 2 for Tech 2 roles. They will then be doing another weekend away for their evaluations.

Big thanks to Black Diamond for the donation of masks. This pandemic is here for a while and we all need to do our part both when we are responding and when we aren’t. Physical distancing is best but wear a mask when you can’t.
