Confined Space Rescue

The Burleson Fire Department has fire fighters trained in confined space rescue. Confined space rescue is a technical rescue operation that involves the rescue and recovery of victims trapped in a confined space or in a place only accessible through confined spaces, such as underground vaults, storage silos, storage tanks, or sewers. Confined space rescues can be technically challenging due to the environment in which they occur. Confined spaces are often narrow and constricting, preventing easy access by rescuers.
