    Question High Rise Rope Rescue SOP

    I am looking for SOP's related to rope rescue during high rise fires. How does your department handle picking someone out a window when the stick or bucket won't reach? Any info on preventing damage to the ropes from fire? I am not looking for anything to technical I am just wondering about basic raises and lowering during a fire. Thanks.

    A good source would be the FDNY's Evolutions 25, 25A and 26; all that deal with the situation you are asking about.

    There are no raises...only lowering of members and/or civilians under the circumstances you are asking about.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I googled it and couldn't find specifics. Can you tell me where I could obtain copies of the evolutions you specified. I did find good pics of rigging on Squad 61's site.
