Hollywood VFD Participate In “High-Risk Low-Frequency” Training Scenario
By Past Chief Charles Miedzinski (CP)
November 17, 2021

On Tuesday evening 16 November 2021, members drilled on one of our “high-risk low-frequency” scenarios, taken right out of recent local response history: Hunter In A Tree Stand/Tree.

This nearly same scenario occurred locally last year- hunter fallen from compromised tree stand, suspended upside down, well away from vehicle access.

Members with experience in, or who have responded to this in “real life,” were encouraged to take a step back in a support role, as members who may not yet have encountered this challenge were given the opportunity to execute a mock response and rescue with the ladders and rigging carried by our special service units.
