Tactical Rappel and Fast Roping

Tactical Rappel Badge.png

We teach 6 main methods for Police (& Military) Height, Rope and Rappel (Abseil) purposes ranging from safety, access to rescue and assault. Police and security forces, including military, have an additional consideration usually which is to carry and maintain their use of force and any other tactical options whilst they are “On Rope” or “At Height.”

All cover the use of rope but some also mention the use of other platforms such as ladders, aerial access points and even helicopters. Most of it focuses on the use of ropes for rappelling (abseiling) in a tactical environment and also includes "Fast Roping / FRIES (Fast Rope Insertion Extraction System" 

Categories of Use
