The cla ss involved an exercise involving recue from a burning tower stack. After comple ting the simulated rescue, the employee began ascending a fixed ladder, wearing a full body harness, which he was tied off. The tie-off was provided using a Tow er Rig that consists of two pieces of pre-made webbing loops, between 6 to 8 fee t in length, with two screw locking carabineers.
