Confined Space Training Aboard the Battleship New Jersey
On Saturday, March 22, 2014, eleven firefighters of the Mount Laurel Fire Department took part in specialized confined space rescue training aboard the Battleship New Jersey in Camden, NJ. Our firefighters, who are also members of the Burlington County Technical Rescue Task Force, were challenged with simulated scenarios requiring them to access very small spaces in order to remove an injured person using ropes and rigging systems. Every technical rescue scenario is different and presents its own unique challenges. Training in this unique environment challenged the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the personnel so they are better prepared to confront confined space emergencies in Mount Laurel and Burlington County.
