Rope Rescue Prop

This extensive structure was designed using intermodal containers in multiple configurations to provide training for high-angle rope rescue, confined space rescue and other multi-story training scenarios. This four story prop allows rescuers to maneuver through vertical and horizontal hatches to rescue simulated victims, as well as perform more elaborate movement of victims between two high-point anchors using an English Reeves system.
