On May 10th, 2019, we hosted an Aerial Rescue Training Workshop with a grant received from ASTI (Arborist Safety Training Institute). Over 100 Certified Arborists, Certified Treecare Safety Professionals and tree care workers from all over the nation, and members of local fire and rescue agencies participated to learn life saving techniques in tree aerial rescue.
Certified Treecare Safety Professional and ISA Certified Arborist, Todd Kramer, of Kramer Tree Specialists, Inc., instructed the workshop. Todd Kramer has been teaching aerial rescue and emergency response courses for more than 15 years throughout the United States.
Tree care professionals face many hazards, some can be fatal. We at First Choice Tree Service understand the great importance of and invest much of our resources in safety by conducting safety meetings, training and workshops regularly to ensure the safety of our most important assets, our employees and clients. Special thanks to Todd Kramer for offering tree care professionals and first responders specialized training in learning the best and safest ways to work together in this type of rescue.
