The Technical Rescue Team is staffed by seven people per shift.
Team members receive extensive training and perform rescues in
the areas of Confined Spaces, Rope Rescue, General Extrication,
Entrapped Patient, Structural Collapse/Advanced Heavy Rescue,
and Truck Operations.
Team members utilize special equipment and apparatus in the
course of their job. To avoid the large capital expenditure
of this specialized equipment, the District has entered into
a unique partnership with United Rentals to donate or replace
existing equipment when needed. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue
thanks United Rentals for its commitment to the public safety!
