Emergency Response – Is your crew ready for a rescue?
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin
Ben Franklin had sound advice for modern tree care operations. Many dangerous situations arise from lack of planning and failure to recognize hazards. To become proficient at dealing with tree work-related incidents one must anticipate them, prepare for worst-case scenarios, and avoid the situations and/or conditions that may lead you or your crew into them. The only “good” incident is one that you are prepared for, but that never happens.
