    I recently attended a confined space and low angle rope rescue training scenario with my local fire dept.

    Firefighter goes over the edge to make initial patient contact for a driver of a car over the edge of the road.

    Firefighters lower a Stokes basket to retrieve a patient.

    Firefighter reports unsafe gas level readings from a handheld gas monitor that was lowered into the underground vault the patient is trapped in.

    Nice series. My department got 12 members certified in high angle last year. It was a lot of fun. At the end of the four days we all did a 100 foot free rappel off one of our towns bridges.

    Very interesting with your back story.
    I like the use of colour contrast - especially the first of the "Others"
    The B&W are my favourites I think.

    [Hate to tell you ... but I think the patient is "unresponsive"!]

    IMO, #1, #2, #3 would have benefited from including their feet and a bit of the ground.

    Nicely captured. I think they would benefit from framing that could convey height or tight spaces. Perhaps angles or more in the picture.
