Confined Space Standby Rescue Teams Chad Warner
Confined Space Rescue Services
Technical Rescue Teams provide a cost savings alternative to maintaining equipment and personnel for an onsite team. Our Rescue Teams provide emergency retrieval systems, supplied air units, personal protective equipment and medical trauma kits for potential rescue in IDLH atmospheres. Rescue personnel monitor all activities inside and outside the space to ensure a safe confined-space entry.
Technical Rescue Teams
Our teams have extensive experience working in boilers, sewers, tunnels, chemical tanks and process vessels. Many facilities use our exceptional crews as Safety Officers, Fire Watches or EMTs during plant shutdowns. Most of our team members are HazMat Technicians with many years of on-the-job experience. Call today to speak with a Technical Rescue Specialist about your tank cleaning or maintenance project!
