Escambia Fire Special Ops, Ascend Hold Joint Training

January 10, 2019

The Escambia County Fire Rescue Special Operations Team held a confined space rescue drill this week with Ascend Performance Materials.

The training is both mentally and physically challenging and requires a specialized skill set.  Every member of the special operations teams is required to obtain an additional 200 or more hours of training. As with most technical rescue operations, confined space operations requires refresher training on a continual basis.

The training provided a chance for both agencies to work and learn together and prepare for any future emergency.
