If a fall occurs, immediately notify the WB Fire Dept. (x4-3333).
The order of rescue options will be as follows:
- If a person has sustained a very short fall and is conscious,
uninjured and can reach the working surface safely and easily,
this option is acceptable.
Work Platform Rescue - If self rescue is not possible, the next option should be
to rescue the person with a "Condor" or "Scissors Lift". For this option to be feasible, take into
account factors such as height of the person, obstructive sets,
floor loading and availability of an aerial work platform.
Department Rescue - If none of the previously mentioned options can be performed
in a prompt and safe manner, the Fire Department will rescue the
person using advanced techniques.
