Life safety ropes are used to enable human rescue from areas of limited or perilous access. These ropes are used by responders to access steep, vertical, and near vertical terrain; ascend or descend from multi-story buildings; and conduct search, rescue, and recovery in maritime environments.
The Life Safety Ropes Focus Group Report is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
