Capt. Stephan Drennan, left, leads Rescue 1 firefighters in a training exercise using a confined space rescue tripod. Capt. Drennan recalls using this confined rescue technique in 2008 to hoist a worker who had passed out while doing welding work from the hold of a barge. Capt. Drennan explained that when there are no emergencies to respond to, his unit takes advantage of the downtime during their shift to refresh their knowledge and skills in using their rescue equipment and to familiarize other firefighters from other fire companies on what they do as well.
