RESCUE ONE

The Rescue One program, begun in 1992, increases the Bureau’s capacity and capability for and ability to respond to incidents requiring heavy, specialized and/ or technical rescue such as structural collapses, trench rescues, confined space rescues, high/low angle rescues, or heavy vehicle extrications. This is accomplished by intensive training of personnel and the purchase of highly specialized equipment.

The Rescue One Unit is the product of a series of major innovations and advances, making the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire one of the premier firefighting and rescue operations in the state and nation. The Rescue One Unit is a part of Pennsylvania Task Force One (PA-TF1)
www.patf1.org , a designated Urban Search and Rescue Team under FEMA. Only 28 such teams exist nationwide and each is available for mobilization in response to any national emergency. The 80-member unit has received more than 300 hours of advanced technical training and was one of the first units to respond to the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11, 2001.
