Line rescue standards

Year: 2018

Nominating section: Cleveland

Policy text:

Conference is concerned that there is a difference in standard operating procedures, and therefore safety, across different Fire and Rescue Services in the UK regarding the provision of line rescue services. Consequently, this Conference is also concerned that some Members are being put at more risk of accident and injury whilst carrying out line rescue duties than others.

Conference therefore calls upon the Executive Council to carry out a survey of all UK Fire and Rescue Services via FBU structures on Line Rescue Policies and Procedures in order to compare all and produce an FBU best guidance document on Line Rescue Procedures and Safety by FBU Conference 2020.
