Last month, 67 people representing 16 companies, gathered in Seattle, Washington, to partake in an aerial rescue training workshop. The most common reason for double fatalities in tree care is failed aerial rescue attempts. An emergency could develop any time one of your crew members is aloft, it’s imperative that you and your crew know how to react. Workshops such as this can help you learn how to handle potentially fatal situations.
Katy Bigelow (independent PNW arborist/consultant) worked alongside TCIA-member Zeb Haney of Tree Resources to organize and host the training workshop. TCIA provided materials for distribution at the workshop, which was well-received. “Thank you very much for supporting this event and our industry,” says Bigelow.To view more photos from the workshop, click here.
