Designed for Firefighting Operations At the behest of several departments, we added a tether that extends the length of the connection out to 16-3/4 inches to reach the ladder rung. The wide padding and quick connect hardware make it comfortable and easy to don. Our lightweight auto-locking ProSeries XL Carabiner is included. Black web with red padding. Fire Ground Products Our fire ground product line began with a fire department request for a ladder belt that had the comfort and quality of a CMC Rescue harness. To the traditional fall restraint and basic tool-carrying capability, we added comfort features and the strength necessary to meet the requirements of NFPA Standard 1983. CMC Rescue has continued to expand the product line for fire ground belts and harnesses by combining our design and engineering with ongoing input from firefighters. Our products can significantly increase the safety of firefighters by providing more and better options for fall restraint and emergency escape. Work Safety The CMC Rescue School offers training classes for work-at-height rope access and rope rescue. Some courses may include instruction about proper use of the Ladder Belt or similar belts used in firefighter ladder climbing for suppression and ladder assisted rescues. CMC Rescue School provides training with course work in technical rescue, tower rescue, fire rescue, confined space rescue & entry, trench rescue, emergency building shoring (EBS), rope access, rope rigging as well as custom contract rope rescue and industrial rope access courses offering class work for the specific needs in the above disciplines or in search and rescue (SAR), urban search and rescue (USAR), helicopter air operations (heli-ops, helo-ops), swiftwater rescue and tactical maneuvers.
