High Angle Rescue Training

If you don't use it, you lose it. The old saying is absolute no matter what skill level. At Black Dragon Rescue Systems, we understand that to accomplish any rescue and get home safe, emergency responders must rely on their wits, skills and quick thinking because the fact of the matter is that there are no "do overs" in the real world.
BDRS values, philosophies and curricula have been forged through real world experiences within uppermost levels of rescue capabilities. Our courses teach solid fundamentals and rigging principals that have been established on tried and true research of science and physics. To acquire higher levels of competency, a rescuer must constantly question and continually improve their core fundamental skills.
BDRS students are immersed in realistic rescue training to develop depth and breadth in problem solving skills necessary for successful rescues. Core fundamental skills and the simple, proven techniques from BDRS are what graduates under the stress of actual rescue operations will utilize with confidence.

In school, your taught a lesson and then given a test.
 In the real world, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson.

The AZTEK pulley system has become a valuable multipurpose tool for rescue and technical rope access practitioners. Although designed originally as an edge restraint carried at the harness, this compact double pulley set has become the ultimate Personal Mechanical Advantage kit that can be configured as a 5:1, or 4:1 with a re-direct by just rotating the system. The AZTEK can be used as a pick off, adjustable directional, high directional guyline, high angle attendant tether, high angle litter scoop, load release hitch and much more. Each pulley is color coded to match with a corresponding prusik for quick identification. The AZTEK pulleys are machined from solid aluminum, feature swivel connection points, and utilize high efficiency bearings.
