Rescue

The Aceis technical rescue team specializes in confined spaces rescue, entry/ non-entry rescue, and fall arrest rescue. Our unit is skilled and equipped with abilities for undertaking emergency rescues that lay outside the scopes of the EMS and firefighting service. A misconception to uninformed employers and managers is that in the event a rescue in imminent, a simple 9-1-1 call will suffice, and the following response will be adequate. Informed employers and managers know that this is not the case. It is required by law for an emergency response plan and on-site rescue procedure to be written, on-hand, and implemented in an emergency. This process takes detail orientation to the extreme, evidently being the framework that will ultimately decide whether an endangered worker lives or dies. This being the case, as your company has enough responsibility fulfilling its business and surrounding obligations, we will take on this obligation for you. Training your employees and purchasing or renting the equipment necessary is costlier than contracting the task out to an already trained and equipped unit. Moreover, having participated in numerous rescues of various complexity and severity, rest assured that our unit is more than capable to respond and rescue, no matter the circumstance.
