Emergency services conducts trench safety training 

Policy developed to establish safe procedures for all excavation, trench and earthwork scenarios

Paso Robles Trench Rescue Training

The Paso Robles Water Division and Emergency Services Department participated in joint training this week for trench safety and rescue operations.

–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.
