Tulsa Fire Cadets Practice Rope Rescues

Posted: Updated:


TULSA, Oklahoma -- Some Tulsa firefighters in training are learning how to conquer their fear of heights.

They spent time practicing rope rescues Thursday. Captain Chuck French said it's not something firefighters are called to do often, but when they do, it's important to be ready.

"We do have a lot of people that work on cell phone towers right now, we have a lot of window washer crews downtown, so we want to be prepared for that in case we have an issue that arises while those guys are doing their work," Captain Chuck French said.

The group of cadets is the largest in TFD history. They're expected to graduate in late September.
