How to bring Stokes back to ground when lifted to high point?
We had an incident where we considered the use of a tower ladder for a 25' below grade trench rescue.
I know how every aspect of it would need to be done, except for one.
When the stokes reaches the bucket of the tower ladder, and is essentially now dangling over the trench in no mans land, how do pull it back to ground?
Would it require another line attached to the basket, to sort of make it into a cable car and let slack on the main line as we pull on that second line to bring it down?
