High Angle Rappelling Unit

rappelling silWith St. John being located on a hilly island with inclines of over 1,500 feet, St John Rescue is often called upon to rappel down these cliffs to assist in medical cases. With no other government agencies equipped or trained in rappelling, St John Rescue is contacted for all incidents. The rappelling unit trains in rescue rappelling, rescue rigging, rescue hauls, rescue rappel devices, rescue knots, safety procedures and protocols, rescue gear, and emergency belaying, while also deploying emergency first-aid.

St. John Rescue offers monthly training for the rappelling unit. If you are knowledgeable in this area, or are interested in learning, please consider joining us as a Responding or Supporting Member.
