The Mount Pleasant Fire Department Technical Rescue Team is a specialized rescue service that encompasses five disciplines: rope rescue, confined space rescue, vehicle/machinery rescue, structural collapse rescue and trench rescue. Each discipline requires advanced training to develop unique skill sets. Station 4 is home to the Technical Rescue Team. Equipment for each operation is maintained at the ready for quick response.
