What We Do
The Confined Space Team is assigned to Station 8 (Whiteaker) and Station 14 (48th Street). Rescue services are provided within the cities' limits, and in some cases, specially called for by one of our medic units operating outside the cities and in need of the services for personnel safety. Industry and government are required to have a designated confined space rescue team in order to obtain certain confined space entry permits. The department’s Confined Space Team provides this service.
The team consists of personnel deployed on the three shifts. Many personnel on the team are also certified in high-angle rope rescue, structural collapse, and below-grade trench rescue.
