LEVEL II SURFACE ICE RESCUE – Williston City Fire Department North Dakota

January 10

Williston Fire Department Surface Ice Rescue Level II

The level II system we put in place is for rescue scenarios that involve rescuing victims from distances greater than 250 feet from shore and require rapid deployment. We focus on rescuing multiple victims using a more advanced “conveyor system” for fast and efficient extrication. The sys­tem uses an in-haul and out-haul method that will offer the rescuer rapid victim extrication from weak and unstable ice conditions.

During the Surface Ice Level II course, we will emphasize proper handling and care for victims that are or may be hy­pothermic. We examine past rescue incidents and how they were handled to better prepare for safer more effective future rescues. This course is an extremely dynamic class that requires everyone on the shore to maximize a success­ful outcome. Our systems are completely colored-coded to minimize confusing communication.

By the end of this course, the rescuer will have more knowl­edge and will be safer and more effective with multiple victims at longer ranges.

These are a few of our Surface Ice Level II highlights:

  • Long-range rescues (greater than 250 feet)
  • Multiple victim extrication
  • Advanced system set-up
  • Ropes and rigging
  • Dynamic in-haul and out-haul operations
