Broome County Technical Rescue Team

The Broome County Technical Rescue Team consists of an all volunteer membership of over 30 certified divers, rope rescue technicians and numerous support personnel.    The teams performs water and rope rescue to support fire and police operations in Broome County, and mutual aid assistance to surrounding counties. Since the inception in 2004, the Dive Response Team has performed numerous dives for both training and emergencies in their personal gear. In 2016, a group of Rope Rescue Technicians were added to the team to support rope operations, both with the dive team and as a High/Low angle rope team

Currently the Team trains monthly and has equipment to operate in all weather conditions.  The Broome County Technical Rescue Team is available to local fire departments for training in water rescue and rope rescue skills.  

Anyone wishing to become a member of the team should contact the Broome County Fire Coordinator or a team officer.
