Firefighters Rescue Climber Suspended 50’ up!

Hey, I owe this toInside Towers for the story. Yesterday, September 10th, 2014, Firefighters went to a tower that is disguised as a farmhouse near Cotati, Ca. Firefighter in Sonoma County rescued him after he fell a few feet, about 4 feet. He was suspended 50’ up in the air and his safety gear caught him. He was hanging upside down for a short time until one of his workmates climbed up and got him upright. However, his workmates could not get him down. So they waited around 40 minutes until the fire department showed up and rigged their ropes and pulled him down. The firefighter said they were practicing rope rescue earlier that day.


It appears he was moving from a pole to a catwalk. The guy is OK! No injuries from another near miss. So happy everyone is OK!

2 books. One for the new tower climber, the green hand, to understand that will be expected. The other is a handy aid to help out when you are at the site. I am writing a new book to go over all of the paperwork that you could encounter on the job so you understand what you are working on and what you should be doing. You may expand to other jobs in the industry. This can be the beginning of a great career path in the wireless industry.
