Emergency services conducts trench safety training
Policy developed to establish safe procedures for all excavation, trench and earthwork scenarios
–The City of Paso Robles Water Division and Emergency Services Department participated in joint training recently for trench safety and rescue operations. Personnel from both departments worked jointly to develop the “Excavations, Trenches, and Earthwork Policy” draft.
The policy establishes safe procedures for all excavation, trench, and earthwork scenarios that personnel from each department may encounter during normal to emergency operations.
The water division provided a large open trench at the water treatment plant yard for practical training purposes. Crews trained over two days to hone their set-up and specialty equipment skills and practice advanced technical rescue techniques. This training is invaluable to deliver best rescue services under emergency circumstances.
