Technical Rescue

Living and playing in a community surrounded by difficult and rugged terrain, the skills and abilities of the Sooke Fire Rescue technical rescue team are often called into action. These firefighters take additional training to become proficient in the skills of confined space, high angle and low slope rope rescue. This training often is used to rescue persons injured at our many regional parks.

With many large construction projects underway, the skills of these firefighters have also been challenged in extricating accident victims from industrial and construction site accidents. Our Rescue Truck is equipped with a wide array of rescue gear and equipment for almost any emergency imaginable.

From heavy lifting equipment, to cutting tools, to water rescue, to rope rescue you can count on the members of Sooke Fire Rescue to quickly respond, stabilize the scene, and rescue your loved ones from the most challenging of environments.
