Because the Most Successful Rescue Is the One We Avoid

Our state-of-the-art equipment and prevention-focused approach raises the odds of potential incident survivability to the highest possible level. Through basic prevention training, we introduce professionals to a variety of practical solutions to increase safety at the jobsite.

Specialized Services

Confined Spaces

Other settings we support include water conveyance systems such as penstocks, tailraces, draft tubes and sump pits.

With qualified personnel and advanced technical rope systems, DC Technical Rescue enables crews to be positioned and supported in otherwise inaccessible settings, such as the face of a dam or a high angle slope.
