Members of the GVFD along with the Gloucester County Technical Rescue Team
held their quarterly drill at Gibbstown's station on May 22.
The members first tried their skills on a scenario based on a rescue in
Manalapan, NJ earlier this year. In the original call, the victim was
unconscious at the bottom of a 20 inch diameter pipe, over 12 feet below
the only available entry point.
Members simulated having to hang upside down from their harness and putting
a hasty harness on the victim. The team found it was much harder than many
expected it to be.
Next, the team practiced building Z-rigs and belay systems and converting
them to lowering systems while under tension. This was done several times,
but using different methods and equipment each time, to simulate potential
The drill lasted approx. 2.5 hours
