Edmonton Technical Rescue Team

Here’s a look at a medium size technical rescue truck from the land of hockey. The truck maybe designed as a medium size but it is packed full of enough equipment to make a heavy rescue envious. The Edmonton Rescue Team responds to events such as tower, bridge and high-rise rescue, confined space rescue, trench and structural collapse, tunnel and sewer entrapment and riverbank rescue.

Technical rescue teams consist of eight members who are trained in high angle, confined space, and static and moving ice rescue. Each platoon has between 18 and 20 staff members qualified to be on the technical rescue team. A specific technical rescue team is assigned to the pump and rescue apparatus at Station 3.
