Today at 1pm Res1cue was requested to the Ramapo Reservation to retrieve a patient who was having a medical emergency in the “waterfall area” of the park. while en route, RS-1 was advised by Chief 140 that this would be a rope rescue due to the location of the patient.
Once on scene our Technical Rescue Team went to work and put the rope rescue plan into action. the patient was safely packaged and brought up the steep incline within a half hour of RS-1’s arrival. The patient was transported down the mountain in the bed of RS-1 to awaiting EMS and paramedics. Company 1 units were clear of the scene in just over an hour.
