Western Massachusetts Regional Tech Rescue Team

WGGB ran a good story about the Franklin County Tech Rescue and how it has lead to the formation of the Regional Tech Rescue Team. http://www.wggb.com/2013/04/23/new-tech-rescue-team-to-protect-region/

The Western Region Homeland Security Advisory Council (WRHSAC) has provided funds to the Western Massachusetts Fire Chiefs Association to conduct both Rope Rescue Training and Confined Space Rescue training for the Regional Team. WRHSAC also provided funds to purchase the trailers and the equipment. Here is a photo of the trailers leaving the manufacturers in North Carolina on their way to Chicopee, where the Regional Tech Rescue Team members are loading the equipment before the trailers are deployed to their staging locations.
