Redway Fire Donates Nearly 1,300′ of Rescue Rope to CHP-Garberville
“Each bag contains a 75′ shot of floating rope to be used for swift water rescue,” Anderson said. “Each car in the local fleet will be equipped with a rescue bag.”
Anderson said the Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue Team will train emergency personnel to use and deploy the new equipment.
“These bags will enable CHP officers to initiate a swift water rescue safely from the shore,” Anderson said.
Additionally, Anderson said Redway Fire recently added the same rescue bags to all five of the vehicles in their fleet.
