As of October 2006, calling 911 is no longer an acceptable rescue plan due to the hazardous potential of confined spaces. Many Fire Departments are not equipped to deal with Confined Space Rescue emergencies and the valuable time lost waiting for Specialized Rescue teams to arrive on scene may be critical to the survivability profile of the trapped or injured persons.
Spartan Rescue Inc. is dedicated in providing our clients excellence in the occupational health and safety training required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act in order to increase worker safety while working at height or in confined spaces. We strive to provide our clients with an ‘in house’ rescue solution should an emergency arise. However, there are many confined spaces where an effective rescue cannot be performed externally. The rescue team must be trained to monitor the environment, use breathing apparatus, assess any hazards, enter the space, package the patient, extricate the patient and provide CPR and First Aid until EMS arrives.
