Heavy Rescue Companies HR121, HR117 and ML117 had the opportunity to do some technical rescue training yesterday at the @riotintokennecott power plant.

Unified Fire has 80 firefighters specially trained in the technical disciplines of Trench Rescue, Rope Rescue, Vehicle and Heavy Machinery Extrication, Confined Space Rescue, Structural Collapse, and Rapid Intervention Team functions. These separate fields of training qualify a firefighter for the Heavy Rescue credentials.

Everyday, a minimum of 13 of these highly skilled individuals are working together in three separate companies, ready to respond with our 95 other on-duty firefighters to any type of emergency that may occurs.

This scene in Millcreek from earlier this week is a great reminder that SEATBELTS SAVE LIVES!
Crews were glad to give a few vehicle occupant a ride, as a precaution, but the lucky occupants appeared ok overall.

Many thanks to @unifiedpolicedepartment for keeping everyone safe as they directed traffic around the scene.

Salt Lake Wildland 1 is hiring! We have 3 Squad Boss positions open. Link to the job description and application in our bio. ...

Nothing short of a miracle occurred today for a construction worker who had found himself at the bottom of a collapsed trench, covered chest high by dirt and rock.

At 12:40 pm today, our Riverton firefighters were dispatched to a trench collapse on a nearby construction site. Understanding the severity and difficulty of the rescue at hand, our Incident Commander immediately called for additional resources, amounting to nearly 50 people on scene. Resouces included Unified Fire Authority Heavy Rescue companies (specializing in trench rescue), Intermountain Life Flight, and multiple vacuum excavation trucks.

In the middle of a blizzard and after working together for nearly two and a half hours, we were able to clear a path for our patient, freeing him from the entrapment...The best part- INJURY FREE!

An average of 35 workers die every year in trenching or excavation cave-ins, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Dirt may not seem particularly dangerous to workers, but NIOSH notes that a single cubic yard of dirt can weigh more than 3,000 pounds, and a trench can collapse without any warning signs.

Today's outcome was simply amazing due to the combined efforts of many talented people. We would like to share our deepest gratitude to @rivertonutahgov for quickly providing us with the City's vacuum excavator and to Badger Daylighting Corp for your quick and steady work. Though unconventional, these vacuums were critical in improving the situation for our patient. You truly saved the day!

We'd also like to express our thanks to Intermountain Life Flight for staging your team and helicopter on scene, even with unfavorable flying conditions. We appreciate you.
