Highlands Ranch Hoist Rescue
Posted On: Sep 20, 2018

At 9:08 a.m. on Tuesday September 18, 2018, Local 2086 members responded to a medical emergency on Woodgate Drive in the Back Country Community in Highlands Ranch. Upon arrival the crews found an injured worker approximately 14 feet below grade in the foundation of a home under construction. The foundation was surrounded with a narrow, deep trench with no safe way to lift and carry the person out. Local 2164 members from: Tower 34, Rescue 34 and Medic 34 responded with Technical Rescue Team personnel and created a rope hoist system with a Stokes Basket attached to the 95’ aerial ladder. Paramedics treated the injured patient who was secured in the basket and slowly lifted out to the street. The person suffered serious, non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital. Although rescue situations like this one are uncommon, firefighters train regularly to stay prepared for them.
